The original "BioSounds" website was derived from the open-source project Pumilio and developed into an independent project in 2013 in the frame of the PhD of Kevin Darras (Agroecology, University of Göttingen), together with Mauladi (Information Systems, University of Jambi). Noemi Perez (freelance web engineer) joined us later and considerably re-designed, re-factored and extended the tool's capabilities.

The development was funded by the DFG CRC990 project's phase 1 and phase 2 grants and supported by the Agroecology research group.

Later, the current "ecoSound-web" website was forked from BioSounds and is now developed by Kevin Darras in the frame of his PostDoc (SASE Lab, Westlake University).

The development is carried out by freelance web engineers, funded by Westlake University PostDoc funds, and supported by the SASE Lab.
