This project by Nicholas Glover called 'Biophones' notes the importance of riparian areas in desert environments. In his project, he discovers sounds as a key metric for ecological health. More sounds throughout a day and night on site simply means more species are in the web of life. More sounds mean better health ecologically. The video presentation below is the second part of a twelve minute film presenting a twenty-four hour experience on site.
This project was the top winner of the 2010 ASLA Student Awards. The project portfolio can be seen here. His single board is below the movie link. (click to enlarge)
