Signature whistles of free-ranging bottlenose dolphins Tursiops truncatus: stability and mother-offspring comparisons
SummaryMother-calf whistle exchanges were recorded from temporarily captured free-ranging bottlenose dolphins from 1975 to 1989. This is part of a long-term research project studying social structureExpand

Signature–whistle production in undisturbed free–ranging bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus)
Data from behavioural observations and acoustic recordings of free–ranging bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) were analysed to determine whether signature whistles are produced by wildExpand

Whistles as Potential Indicators of Stress in Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops truncatus)
Abstract We examined the possibility that parameters of bottlenose dolphin signature whistles may serve as indicators of stress. Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in Sarasota Bay, Florida,Expand

Individual recognition in wild bottlenose dolphins: a field test using playback experiments
We conducted playback experiments with wild bottlenose dolphins, Tursiops truncatus, to determine whether there is sufficient information in their individually distinctive signature whistles forExpand

Identifying signature whistles from recordings of groups of unrestrained bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus)
Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) have individually distinctive signature whistles. Each individual dolphin develops its own unique frequency modulation pattern and uses it to broadcast itsExpand

Communication in bottlenose dolphins: 50 years of signature whistle research
Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) produce individually distinctive signature whistles that broadcast the identity of the caller. Unlike voice cues that affect all calls of an animal, signatureExpand

Signature whistle shape conveys identity information to bottlenose dolphins.
Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) develop individually distinctive signature whistles that they use to maintain group cohesion. Unlike the development of identification signals in most otherExpand
