Slovenian Wildlife Sound Archive
Slovenian Wildlife Sound Archive is a scientific collection of animal sounds housed
in the Slovenian Museum of Natural History.
The collection includes mainly original animal sound recordings on digital storage media
(HD-s, CD-s, CD ROM-s, DVD-s, etc.), DAT-cassettes, analogue magnetic tapes and cassettes,
which were made by researchers in the museum and some other collaborators.
The old collection of Heteroptera recordings stored on analogue magnetic tapes was currently partly
transferred to digital storage media.
The primary goal of the archive is to collect the recordings of sounds and calls of all the
animal species distributed in Slovenia, which are producing sounds.
The research is focused mainly into the bioacoustics of Cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadidae) in
Europe, Asia Minor and SE Asia.
