Abstract:

The Science, Technical Innovation and Applications in Bioacoustics Workshop was held at the Marine Hotel, North Berwick, East Lothian, Scotland between 4-5 May 2004. focused upon three main topics 1 The state of our understanding of the basic science of bioacoustics - summarizing what we know, and what we dont know, about acoustic signals produced by animals and how they acquire knowledge about their environment. 2 The conceptual basis for bioacoustics-based engineered systems - addressing the question of how bioacoustics signals can meet human information needs, what will be the characteristics of an engineered bioacoustics system 3 Science and technology gaps - identifying research needs and priorities. This report details the key results from the workshop and provides an initial statement from delegates about each of these topics. Instead of reproducing what was said by delegates the presentations of whom are contained in Appendix 3 the written report summarises the main findings of the meeting in a precised form. The report effectively is the joint product of all of the delegates who attended and contributed, not only with presentations and discussion at the time, but in writing subsequently.
