New paper: anthropogenic noise affects detectability in grassland bird surveys mainly via errors in distance estimates

My post-doc mentor, Dr. Nicola Koper, has recently published a new (open access) paper on the effects of ambient noise on detectability in grassland birds in Ecology and Evolution (I am a co-author on this paper) on whether bird survey results might be affected by anthropogenic noise.  The main message is that species are still detectable, but noise can affect observers' ability to estimate distances to unseen vocalizing birds.
