The BioWaWi project aims to investigate how water management influences biodiversity, and to identify the conditions that water management must fulfill to ensure the sustainable conservation of biodiversity. In the Citizen Science part of the project, citizens are invited to help with the biodiversity monitoring of the water catchment areas. They collect data (sound recordings and photographs) and information on biodiversity in habitats of different water regimes which are both easy to obtain and suitable for scientific evaluation. The App of Dawn Chorus (www.dawn-chorus.org), a project of BIOTOPIA – Naturkundemuseum Bayern is used by citizen scientists to collect recordings of animal sounds, mainly birds, crickets and grasshoppers, as well as some amphibia.
