Animal Bioacoustics

The Animal Bioacoustics Technical Committee studies the acoustic communication, sound production anatomy and auditory capacities of non-human animals as well as their behavioral responses to environmental sounds. In addition the use of acoustic techniques for population assessment, identification and behavior measurements are considered.

The Animal Bioacoustics Technical Committee Open Meeting is typically held at every ASA meeting on Tuesday at 7:30 pm.
