IBRG's Jason Preble (PhD student, Kyoto University) was awarded the Best Presentation Award by the Mammal Society of Japan (MSJ) during the MSJ Annual Meeting held Sep 7-10, 2018 at Shinshu University Ina Campus, Nagano.
Jason presented results of his work on Seasonal Responses to Acoustic Luring and Preliminary Acoustic Surveying of the Ryukyu Tube-nosed Bat and Yanbaru Whiskered Bat on Okinawa Island (沖縄島におけるリュウキュウテングコウモリとヤンバルホオヒゲコウモリの季節的な音響ルアー反応と音響モニタリングの予備結果). This study was done in collaboration with other IBRG members, especially David Hill (Kyoto University), who provided precious guidance on bat social calls to be used with the Autobat lure.
