Research Invertebrate Hearing & Bioacoustics Sensory capabilities of these ecologically key animals. Marine Mammal (and Bird) Hearing Examining the age old question of form and function, population-level variability, the influence of natural soundscapes, and how species differ. Bioacoustic Behavior Recording the natural acoustic behavior of marine animals. Fisheries Bycatch and Depredation Investigating means to reduce bycatch and depredation. Soundscapes and Passive Acoustics Monitoring changes in the ambient acoustic environment. Squid Ecophysiology These projects look at the abilities of squid to deal with human-caused stressors, either through physiology or behavior, across the animal's life history. Invertebrate Biosensing Examining fine scale behaviors of soft-bodied invertebrates with accelerometer based tags.
