Lecture: James Crutchfield and Bioacoustic Interactions

Insects, Trees, and Climate: The Bioacoustic Ecology of Deforestation and Entomogenic Climate Change (60:31) Professor James Crutchfield explores a novel bioacoustic interaction between insects and trees as key drivers of infestation population dynamics and the resulting wide-scale deforestation. The proposed mechanisms he suggests may provide nontoxic control interventions and detection strategies. His lecture, based on work with acoustic ecologist and sound artist David Dunn, and others, explores three themes: (1) Pattern and Chaos; (2) Bioacoustics and climate change; (3) Art and Science.  Source: Vimeo and UCLA Art|Science.
