To learn more about the occurrence and behaviour of a recently discovered population of blue whales, passive acoustic data were collected between January 2012 and April 2013 in the Chiloense ecoregion of southern Chile. Automatic detectors and manual auditing were used to detect blue whale songs (SEP calls) and D calls, which were then analysed to...
The study of mammal acoustic communication was revolutionized by the application of the source-filter theory, originally developed for human speech. The theory states that the vocal tract is constrained by body anatomy and, therefore, creates a structural link between phenotype and acoustic formants, providing a basis for honest signalling. The phe...
Vocal imitation happens when novel sounds are produced by imitating previously heard sounds. Comparative studies on imitation can pinpoint the mechanisms enabling plasticity in sound production and usage in different species. Grey seals (Halychoerus grypus), like other pinnipeds, naturally produce a range of sounds and have good control over the su...
