With increased polar anthropogenic activity, such as from the oil and gas industry, there are growing concerns about how Arctic species will be affected. Knowledge of species’ sensory abilities, such as auditory sensitivities, can be used to mitigate the effects of such activities. Herein, behavioral audiograms of two captive adult Arctic foxes (Vulpes lagopus) were measured using a yes/no paradigm and descending staircase method of signal presentation. Both foxes displayed a typical mammalian… 
The Sensory Biology of the Red Fox - Hearing, Vision, Magnetoreception
This study deals with the sensory systems of the red fox, more specifically with audition, vision, and magnetoreception. In the first chapter, I present the behavioural audiograms of three red fox


Effects of simulated aircraft noise on hearing, food detection, and predator avoidance behavior of the kit fox, Vulpes marotis
Four kit foxes were captured south of Gila Bond, Arizona, in an area not overflown by aircraft and trained to identify simulated prey and predator noise at the minimum level required for detection.

Tolerance by ringed seals (Phoca hispida) to impact pipe-driving and construction sounds at an oil production island.
Impact pipe-driving sounds at Northstar Island were recorded underwater and in air at distances 63-3000 m from the source and reactions of nearby ringed seals (in water or on ice) were documented.

Psychophysicists attempting to obtain acoustic threshold estimates in marine mammals have been relatively unaware of setting up reinforcement contingencies which have resulted in their animals using
Signal detection theory and psychophysics
This book discusses statistical decision theory and sensory processes in signal detection theory and psychophysics and describes how these processes affect decision-making.
