  • Abstract

    A method to classify anurans based on the spectrogram representations of their call vocalizations is presented. The spectrogram representations have distinctive patterns that may be used to differentiate between species. As such, they can be treated as input images to advanced correlation filters frequency employed in human biometrics applications. A type of correlation filter that has been successfully implemented for face and fingerprint biometrics is considered here. In order to obtain clear spectrograms with distinguishing features, careful selection of spectrogram parameters is performed. To demonstrate this approach, two species of anurans commonly found in Southeast Asia are classified showing that the accuracy rate is dependent on the number of call-prints used to construct the correlation filter templates.
