Course description

This course is only offered in the Summer Session.

This course offers a multidisciplinary analysis of information transfer by sound in the animal kingdom. The physics of sound production, propagation, and reception are used here to understand the factors affecting acoustic communication in insects, fishes, frogs, birds, and mammals, including humans. Bioacoustic experiments are designed to record, visualize, and analyze sound signals, and to show students the ways in which acoustic communication bridges with related fields, including neurobiology, psychology, engineering, and computer sciences.
