Our data put in context.

Experimentally derived detection distances from audio recordings and human observers enable integrated analysis of point count data

Yip D, Leston L, Bayne E, Solymos P, and Grover A VIEW

The study compares the detection distances between human listeners and autonomous recording units (ARUs). The study noted that humans generally could detect sound at a greater distance than an ARU. The results from this comparison were used to generate correction factors for four commonly used ARUs to standardize detection distances.
