How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I completed my PhD at the University of New South Wales and am currently living in Europe looking for opportunities of the environmental kind. My interests involve the acoustic communication of mammals and how they change over time and under human influence. I am also interested in environmental education and informing the general public and decision makers about environmental issues and changes that can be made to make a difference.
Previous studies of the vocalisation frequencies of mammals have suggested that it is either body mass or environment that drives these frequencies. Using 193 species across the globe from the terrestrial and aquatic environments and a model selection approach, we identified that the best supported model for minimum and maximum frequencies for voca...
A single male Australian sea lion (Neophoca cinerea) was tested for its auditory sensitivity to in air sound. Short, broadband clicks were presented via headphones while the animal was immobilized during medical treatment. Click-evoked auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) were recorded in the animal after acoustic stimulation at decreasing sound pre...
Background / Purpose: The factors driving the evolution of acoustic behaviour in mammals remain unresolved. Conflicting hypothesis, the size-frequency allometry hypothesis and acoustic adaptation hypothesis, predict that body size or alternatively the environment have driven the design of acoustic signals. The movement of mammals from land to sea...
Is there a database or resources that contains the surface area, or length of mammalian pinnae? I am looking for data for a meta-analysis, either measurement would be fine. Thanks
