The purpose of the AVADECAF simulation tool is to assess the power of a given PAM survey to detect a change in animal density (given specific survey and species parameters). The user can specify different survey parameters such as the number of PAM units and the number of localising PAM units, how long the survey is conducted for, how often density estimates are obtained from the data etc. As well as these, the user can specify various parameters related to the vocal behaviour of the species of interest including vocalisation (cue) rate, perception bias, detection function, false positive rate etc.
