Dan Mennill runs the Mennill Sound Analysis Laboratory - Canada's largest laboratory devoted to the study of animal sounds. His research explores the vocal behaviour of temperate and tropical birds, including chickadees, wrens, sparrows, warblers, and woodpeckers. He has pioneered many new technologies for ecological research, including microphone arrays for spatial monitoring of wild animals, new technologies for sound playback to wild birds, and innovative techniques in radiotelemetry.
