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… Expand
