Welcome to BioAcoustica. This site is an online repository and analysis platform for scientific recordings of wildlife sounds. In order to use the analysis functions you will need to create an account.
It is hoped that this archive of field and laboratory recordings will become a useful resource for those working on acoustic identification and monitoring whether they work by ear or are developing automated techniques.

Designing an integrated DNA metabarcoding and image analysis approach to study and monitor biodiversity of zooplanktonic copepods
The aim of the 'MetaCopepod' project is to develop a novel methodology, based on the combination of next generation sequencing technologies and image analysis, to assess and monitor the biodiversity of marine zooplanktonic copepods (and cladocera), in a fast, high-throughput, reliable and quantitative way.
