The Accuracy of Quantitative Methods to Identify Bats from Vocalizations Alone
Joshua B. Kelly
Dr. Jason E. Miller and Dr. Scott Burt, Faculty Mentors

Three years of research have resulted in statistical, quantitative models that may be able to identify a species of bat from echolocation recordings alone. A question that remains is the accuracy and usability of such models in a field setting. Recent research has used statistical validation methods to answer this question and to suggest possible uses of such models for aiding conservation methods of endangered species.

Keywords: mathematical biology, bats, echolocation, statistics, validation, endangered species
