Geographic variation in the acoustic repertoire has been described for several marine and terrestrial organisms and can be used for the identification of different populations and to allocate individuals to certain populations. Passive acoustic monitoring can be utilized to derive a baseline understanding of the distribution of Antarctic pinnipeds in difficult accessible habitats like the Southern Ocean where harsh weather conditions and limited light availability complicate data collection… Expand
