Displacement of Orcinus orca (L.) by high amplitude sound in British Columbia, Canada
Whale displacement by acoustic “pollution” has been difficult to document, even in cases where it is strongly suspected, because noise effects can rarely be separated from other stimuli. TwoExpand

Vocal behavior of resident killer whale matrilines with newborn calves: the role of family signatures.
Studies of the vocal behavior of resident killer whales or orcas, Orcinus orca, in British Columbia have shown that matrilines have unique call repertoires consisting of up to 17 different callExpand

Infanticide in a mammal-eating killer whale population
Infanticide can be an extreme result of sexual conflict that drives selection in species in which it occurs. It is a rarely observed behaviour but some evidence for its occurrence in cetaceans existsExpand

Intra- and intergroup vocal behavior in resident killer whales, Orcinus orca.
Vocal communication within and between groups of individuals has been described extensively in birds and terrestrial mammals, however, little is known about how cetaceans utilize their sounds inExpand

Call sharing across vocal clans of killer whales: Evidence for vocal imitation?
In killer whales or orcas (Orcinus orca) vocal matching appears to be an important aspect of within-group communication, but fish-eating “resident” orcas frequently associate with whales that shareExpand

A neural network method for recognition of individual Orcinus orca based on their acoustic behaviour: phase 1
Using a backpropagation neural network algorithm three experiments were designed to discriminate between the acoustic behaviour of Orcinus orca. The first experiment established the procedures byExpand

Deep Learning for Ethoacoustics of Oreas on three years pentaphonie continuous recording at Orealab revealing tide, moon and diel effects
One of the best ways of studying animals that produce signals in underwater environments is to use passive acoustic monitoring (PAM). Acoustic monitoring is used to study marine mammals in oceans,Expand

Large-scale unsupervised clustering of Orca vocalizations: a model for describing orca communication systems
Killer whales (Orcinus orca) can produce 3 types of signals: clicks, whistles and vocalizations. This study focuses on Orca vocalizations from northern Vancouver Island (Hanson Island) where the NGOExpand
