Measuring hearing in the harbor seal (Phoca vitulina): comparison of behavioral and auditory brainstem response techniques.
Auditory brainstem response (ABR) and standard behavioral methods were compared by measuring in-air audiograms for an adult female harbor seal (Phoca vitulina). Behavioral audiograms were obtainedExpand

Acoustic characteristics of ultrasonic coded transmitters for fishery applications: could marine mammals hear them?
Ultrasonic coded transmitters (UCTs) producing frequencies of 69-83 kHz are used increasingly to track fish and invertebrates in coastal and estuarine waters. To address concerns that they might beExpand

Animal vocal sequences: not the Markov chains we thought they were
We assess whether animal taxa produce vocal sequences that are better described by Markov chains, or by non-Markovian dynamics such as the ‘renewal process’ (RP), characterized by a strong tendency to repeat elements. Expand

Relative abundance and behavior of marine mammals exposed to transmissions from the Heard Island Feasibility Test.
The Heard Island Feasibility Test source transmitted a hum at 209-220 dB re: 1 microPa at 175-m depth, centered on 57 Hz with a maximum bandwidth of 30 Hz for 1 h of every 3. Experienced marineExpand

Impacts of acute and long-term vehicle exposure on physiology and reproductive success of the northern spotted owl
Stress physiologists posit that multiple simultaneous demands faced by an organism may have non-additive effects on the magnitude of their response to disturbance. The environmental assessmentExpand

Auditory evoked potentials in two short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus).
The hearing sensitivities of two short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus) were investigated by measuring auditory evoked potentials generated in response to clicks and sinusoidalExpand

Behavioral Responses and Habituation of Pinnipeds and Small Cetaceans to Novel Objects and Simulated Fishing Gear With and Without a Pinger
Marine mammals are vuln erable to entanglement in nets and lines. To quantify their interactions with fishing gear, pinnipeds and small cetaceans were exposed to novel objects and simulated fishingExpand
