Collaborative Research: Bioacoustics and Behavior of American Crocodile in Belize

Project Info

Project Description

In collaboration with the CRC, Master’s researcher Miriam Boucher from West Virginia University is studying acoustics and behavior of American crocodiles in Belize.  Using specialized recording equipment, she is building an acoustic profile of American crocodiles and analyzing distress call production across a gradient of human environmental disturbance.  In addition to acoustics, she is also compiling behavioral data comparing time-activity budgets and behavioral trends between locations of differing environmental disturbance. Through this research she is working to better understand the impacts of human development and contact on crocodile acoustics and behavior and explore new avenues for applied management using acoustics.
