Animal Acoustic Communication: Sound Analysis and Research Methods
Steven L. Hopp, Michael J. Owren, Christopher Stuart Evans
Springer-Verlag, 1998 - Science - 421 pages
The field of animal acoustic communication has experienced exciting growth in recent years as techniques borrowed from many scientific disciplines have been applied in new ways. For a modern, integrated approach to research in comparative bioacoustics, researchers need access to a wealth of technical an methodological information. This volume answers that need. Animal Acoustic Communication not only provides researchers with an update on the most recent techniques, especially the application of digital computers, but also offers in a single volume an overview of all aspects of this field of study. Its consistent, readable style makes this volume an accessible handbook for students and a valuable resource for more established researchers.
