ABSTRACT Underwater vocalisations of Weddell seals Leptonychotes weddellii were recorded approximately 1400 km apart at Casey and Davis, Antarctica. Recordings were made during the 1992 and 1997 breeding seasons at Davis and during the 1997 season at Casey. Two observers independently analysed four attributes (start and end frequency, duration and number of elements) of narrow bandwidth calls from each location and time. There were few observer differences when the calls were grouped into four… Expand
Geographic variations in underwater male Weddell seal Trills suggest breeding area fidelity
TLDR
Underwater Trill vocalizations of male Weddell seals at Mawson, Davis, Casey, McMurdo Sound, Neumayer and Drescher Inlet, suggest that males remain close to single breeding areas throughout their lifetime. Expand
Geographic variation of Weddell seal (Leptonychotes weddellii) airborne mother–pup vocalisations
TLDR
Results support suggestions that, when compared with underwater repertoire differences, airborne within-call differences are less efficient at identifying Weddell seal breeding populations. Expand
Preliminary evidence for signature vocalizations among free-ranging narwhals (Monodon monoceros).

TLDR
Data are consistent with the hypothesis that narwhals produce signature vocalizations that may facilitate their reunion with group members once they become separated, but additional data are required to demonstrate this claim more rigorously. Expand
Reproductive strategies of Weddell seals in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica: relationship among vocalizations, behaviors, and social interactions
TLDR
Using underwater audio and video recordings of Weddell seals interacting in McMurdo Sound, the frequencies of vocalizations and behaviors of males and females during the mating season were compared and patterns of vocalization and behaviors were identified to help determine the behavioral context of calls.

Male advertisement call characters as phylogeographical indicators in European water frogs
TLDR
This approach robustly separated the three types of north European water frogs (Rana ridibunda, R. lessonae and their viable, fertile hybrid R. esculenta) by their call subunit characteristics and demonstrated significant intraspecific differences among populations of all three frog types. Expand
Anuran accents: Continental‐scale citizen science data reveal spatial and temporal patterns of call variability
TLDR
It is concluded that in order to accurately understand frog advertisement call variation, or “anuran accents,” the number of individuals in a sample must be numerous, encompass a large geographic area relative to a species' range, and be collected throughout a species’ calling season. Expand
Communication in Marine Mammals
TLDR
Observing and examining the social and ecological differences among individuals and groups will help elucidate the mechanisms underlying the use and evolution of different signals to exchange information among individuals, i.e., to communicate. Expand
Neglected native or undesirable alien? Resolution of a conservation dilemma concerning the pool frog Rana lessonae
TLDR
A high degree of convergence among the genetic and bioacoustic investigations demonstrated that the potentially native UK pool frogs were closely related to Scandinavian frogs, thus ruling out introductions from further south as a potential origin. Expand

Communication is a process by which a sender produces a signal, which alters the probability of a subsequent behav­ ior in a receiver(s). Often, but not always, communication facilitates socialExpand

Repertoire and Geographic Variation in Underwater Vocalisations of Weddell Seals (Leptonychotes weddellii, Pinnipedia : Phocidae) at the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica
TLDR
The case for macrogeographic variation in underwater Weddell seal vocalisations around Antarctica is strengthened, as some adult females move to different breeding sites within the Vestfold Hills area between years, which would probably preclude the establishment of site-specific repertoire differences. Expand
Underwater vocalizations of the bearded seal (Erignathus barbatus)
TLDR
The results suggest that bearded seals may be relatively sedentary and that geographically different vocal repertoires may be characteristic of discrete breeding stocks. Expand
Geographic variation in the underwater vocalizations of Weddell seals (Leptonychotes weddelli) from Palmer Peninsula and McMurdo Sound, Antarctica
TLDR
Geographically different vocal repertoires have potential for identifying discrete breeding stocks of Antarctic seals and include strong fidelity to breeding sites, a polygynous mating system, and learning. Expand
Variation of harp seal (Pagophilus groenlandicus) underwater vocalizations among three breeding locations
TLDR
T tagging studies indicate that the Gulf and Front herds may be interbreeding and both are reproductively isolated from the Jan Mayen herd, and there is no evidence of acoustic adaptation to the site-specific ice and environmental conditions associated with the three study locations. Expand
Microgeographic variation and songs in the underwater vocalisation repertoire of the Weddell seal (Leptonychotes weddellii) from the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica
TLDR
Seven male songs are described in the present study and possibly function to maintain underwater territories and reflect the limited, observed interchange of individuals between these populations due to their strong breeding site fidelity. Expand
Quantitative analysis of Weddell seal (Leptonychotes weddelli) underwater vocalizations at Mcmurdo Sound, Antarctica.
TLDR
This study standardizes the description and terminology for underwater vocalizations, reports source sound-pressure levels, and reviews usage differences by male and female seals. Expand
Discussion of the analyses
Thus, the objective was set as the determination of classification methods for vocalizations based on the seven variables provided. The problem is fundamentally multivariate, since the observation ofExpand
