In order to speak, animals ship and obtain signs which are topic to their specific anatomical, mental, and environmental constraints. This SHAR quantity discusses either the creation and conception of acoustic signs. Chapters handle the knowledge that animals converse, how the verbal exchange is built and realized, and the way verbal exchange platforms have tailored and developed inside of species. The e-book will supply examples from numerous species.

W. 4. Ray paths (right column) for sound in deep (A) and shallow (B) water. To the left of each series of ray paths is the associated sound-velocity (SV) profile (see Fig. 2). (A) Propagation in the deep sound channel in the Norwegian Sea. The source depth (SD) is at 500 m. Propagation is dominated by refracted-refracted ray paths. (B) Propagation in the Mediterranean Sea in summer for a source depth (SD) of 50 m. In this case, propagation is dominated by bottom-reflected ray paths with additional contribution from surface-reflected rays.

Schematic diagram illustrating differences in four baleen whale song features, where two of the species, humpback and bowhead, are coastal singers and two others, blue and fin, are deep ocean singers. Inter–note interval is the time in seconds between adjacent song elements, and time-bandwidth product, a dimensionless unit, is the product of element duration and bandwidth. humpback singers produce sounds in the 20–30-Hz band. It remains to be determined whether these infrasonic singers are older, larger, or more successful breeders than noninfrasonic singers.

2000; Edds-Walton 2000). There are a few sample recordings for Bryde’s (Balaenoptera edeni) (Cummings 1985; Edds et al. 1993), sei (Balaenoptera borealis) (Thompson et al. 1979; Knowlton et al. 1991), and pygmy right (Caperea marginata) (Dawbin and Cato 1992) whales. Baleen whale sounds are often very intense, with maximum reported band levels as high as 188 dB re 1 mPa (see Richardson et al. 1). , Thode et al. 2000). Increasing the source level is one direct mechanism for reaching a greater audience.
