The Scholarship The Habitat Foundation is funding a Masters Scholarship for Research in Bioacoustics on Penang Hill which will be offered at the School of Biological Sciences (SBS), USM. The successful candidate will have their university registration and tuition fees covered, and receive a monthly stipend of RM1,000 for 24 months. Equipment and field costs will be provided by The Habitat Foundation. Insights into the rhythm of life Bioacoustics is an exciting new research field. The sounds of the Malaysian rainforest – frogs, geckos, birds, bats, squirrels, primates, and insects create a distinctive soundscape. With emerging technology and analytic software we are now able to capture the sounds of nature and gain valuable insights into the natural world. Documenting and monitoring this soundscape also has the potential to provide indicators of species diversity and ecosystem health. Research Topic: Application of bioacoustics to document and monitor wildlife diversity on Penang Hill The aim of this research is to document the diversity and abundance of wildlife of Penang Hill using bioacoustics. It will build a reference library of unique sonotypes for the species of the hill. This will provide a baseline and foundation for asking important ecological questions. Who can apply The scholarship is offered to Malaysian citizens and will be for 2 years. Suitable candidates are encouraged to apply by 30 August 2021. The study is expected to commence in October 2021. Candidates should enjoy the outdoors and have a keen sense of curiosity and interest in conducting fieldwork in the tropical rain forest possess a Bachelor’s degree in biology, geography or any other relevant field (CGPA >2.75/4.00) have a good command of English and Bahasa Malaysia be self-motivated and capable of carrying out independent research be a good team player but also able to work under minor supervision How to apply Applicants should submit a short statement letter (1 page) explaining their interest in the research accompanied by their (1) Curriculum Vitae, (2) academic transcript, and (3) letter of reference.

They all look quite similar actually. According to my latest online finding, silverfish and firebrat are grouped under Zygentoma (formerly Thysanura), leaving bristletail in Microcoryphia. However, I have found conflicting information from other sites which consider silverfish and firebrat to be synonymous with bristletail. To all the professional entomologists out there, I would like to know your perspective on this. Silverfish?
