The role of freshwater bioacoustics in ecological research

Jack A. Greenhalgh, Martin J. Genner, Gareth Jones, Camille Desjonquères

Year-round variability of ambient noise in temperate freshwater habitats and its implications for fishes

Sonja Amoser, Friedrich Ladich
2010 Aquatic Sciences  
Sound pressure level (SPL) and spectral composition of the ambient noise varied in both quiet stagnant habitats (lakes, backwaters) and in flowing habitats (streams, rivers).  ...  The spectral compositions of the ambient noise determined at different times of the year were highly correlated to each other at the river sites (mean cross-correlation coefficients: 0.85 and 0.94) and  ...  This study was supported by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF Grants Nos. 15783 and 17263 to F.
