Brief description

This dataset contains records of microbats from throughout the Australian Wet Tropics and Papua New Guinea rainforests. Data consists of recordings of ultrasonic echolocation call, in the form of sonograms, as well as datasheets detailing summaries of the raw data.

Full description

AnaBat SD1 CF bat detector units (Titley Scientific, Ballina, NSW, Australia) were used to detect bat activity at various sites and elevations throughout the study areas. Detectors record species specific echolocation calls. All calls were viewed using the call-analysis program AnalookW (Version 0.3.7w, Corben 2009 - downloadable from http://users.lmi.net/corben/anabat.htm#Anabat Contents). Calls were then identified using recorded release calls and with the aid of various call libraries (Crome and Richards 1988; Inkster 2008; Milne 2002; Pennay et al. 2004; Reinhold et al. 2001; Robson et al. 2012). Species that could not be confidently identified were assigned a species code based on the shape and frequency of the call. All files are labeled with location and date or recording, and either species name, species code, or other (e.g. 'noise' for files that do not contain bats calls).
