Technical Committee on Animal Bioacoustics

Animal Bioacoustics, often called simply bioacoustics, is the study of sound in non-human animals. It includes within its scope: animal communication and associated behavior, sound production anatomy and neurophysiology of animals, auditory capacities and auditory mechanisms of animals, instrumental sonar: use in population assessment, identification, and behavior as well as the effects of human-made noise on animals.
