Introduction

Comparative bioacoustics is extraordinarily broad in scope. It includes the study of sound propagation, dispersion, attenuation, absorption, reverberation, and signal degradation as well as sound detection, recognition, and classification in both marine and terrestrial organisms (including humans). This research is informed by an understanding of the mechanisms underlying sound generation and aural reception, as well as the anatomy and physiology of the organs dedicated to these functions.

Comparative bioacoustics is the definitive introductory guide to the field of acoustics in animal and human biology. Key features of this volume are:

-Comprehensive introduction to sound and related physical phenomena

-Multidisciplinary and comparative analyses of bioacoustic phenomena

-Integrated audio and video clips

-Information about relevant research methods in bioacoustics

Comparative bioacoustics makes key information accessible to readers, therefore, meeting the requirements of both novice and advanced researchers preparing for a scholarly career in bioacoustics.
