THE Institute for Biodiversity and Environmental Research (IBER), Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) will hold a talk on Wednesday on how humans relate to an environment through sound.

The lecture will take place at FSM2.18 of UBD’s Faculty of Science building at 2.30pm.

Professor Bryan Pijanowski of Purdue University, USA, will deliver the lecture, “Soundscape Ecology: An Overview of A New Paradigm For Understanding The Dynamics of Coupled Natural-Human Systems”.

Soundscape ecology attempts to measure and understand how ecosystems are affected by human activity at a variety of spatial, temporal and organisational scales through the use of long-term acoustic sensor recording and analysis, a press release said.

Pijanowski’s research focused on the measurement and analysis of sound from three main sources: biological, geo-physical and anthropogenic.

He is in Brunei to continue his cross-ecosystem comparison studies.
