Faunal vocalisations are vital indicators for environmental change and faunal vocalisation analysis can provide information for answering ecological questions. Therefore, automated species recognition in environmental recordings has become a critical research area. This thesis presents an automated species recognition approach named Timed and Probabilistic Automata. A small lexicon for describing animal calls is defined, six algorithms for acoustic component detection are developed, and a series of species recognisers are built and evaluated.The presented automated species recognition approach yields significant improvement on the analysis performance over a real world dataset, and may be transferred to commercial software in the future.
