Waddle, J.H., Hefner, J.M., and Walls, S.C., 2017, Computer automated frog vocalization results from Picayune Strand State Forest, Florida 2011-2012: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This dataset includes the results of a computer automated anuran vocalization recognition analysis of audio recordings made at Picayune Strand State Forest in 2011 and 2012. The audio files were scanned for 11 species of frogs and toads using the commercially available software program Song Scope (ver. 4.1.3). All detections by the software are listed here along with a "result" field which indicates whether or not the computer detection was a true positive or a false positive.

The purpose of this dataset is to provide a complete list of the calls of the 11 species that were detected during the study. These data could be used to estimate site occupancy for the species or to examine phenology. This work represents a snapshot of the anuran community prior to the bulk of the hydrologic restoration at the site, so it is also a good baseline for future evaluations of the success of restoration at the site.
