Barking and mobbing
Humming in bears: a peculiar sustained mammalian vocalization
This work clarified the presence of this vocalization in the species of the Ursidae as well as its structural characteristics and specific mode of sound production, and introduced the term humming for it.
Singing in a wolf chorus: structure and complexity of a multicomponent acoustic behaviour
This research provides for the first time a detailed, objective description of the types of call emitted during the wolf howlings, combining spectrographic examinations, spectral analyses and automated classifications, with the aim to identify different types ofcall.
Potential Sources of High Frequency and Biphonic Vocalization in the Dhole (Cuon alpinus)
The results suggest that the high-frequency and biphonic calls in dog-like canids can be produced without specific anatomical adaptations of the sound-producing structures.
The contribution of source–filter theory to mammal vocal communication research
A wealth of experimental work conducted within the sourcefilter framework over the last decade is drawn together and it is reviewed how such experiments have elucidated the communicative value of animal vocalizations.
A study of vocal nonlinearities in humpback whale songs: from production mechanisms to acoustic analysis
The results show that vocal nonlinearities may be a communication strategy that conveys information about the whale’s body size and physical fitness, and thus may be an important component of humpback whale songs.
Vocal changes in animals during disorders
The harmonic-to-noise-ratio (HNR), an acoustic parameter not yet used in animal bioacoustics, was applied to dog barks to quantify dysphonia and certain aspects of the vocal fold and vocal tract anatomy were investigated in respect to their significance for laryngeal sound generation.
