FishSounds is an online database of recordings of the noises created by fish, like this Bocon toadfish.
Growing research shows that fish produce sounds that other creatures listen to to find food and avoid becoming prey. A new database compiles research on these fish sounds.
Hippos are very vocal creatures. They display certain aggressive behaviour when strangers are in their territory.
From the bioelectric bleeps of plants to the intergalactic bloops of colliding black holes, sound gives us new ways to experience the world.
African Penguins are among the species affected by noises made by seismic underwater exploration.
There is plenty of work to do to ensure that other species, geographical areas and ecosystems across Africa are better understood through bioacoustics.
The ocean is naturally noisy. Here’s what all the buzz is about.
The ears of bush crickets are found on their forelegs.
Statistical techniques are often used to show where poaching actually happens.
There is a promising trend of growing research and training in statistical ecology in Africa.
Artificial light - including at the Tribute in Light in New York City - disorients nocturnal migratory birds.
Artificial light, from low-level backyard lighting to lights in office buildings and skyscrapers, distract migratory birds with deadly effects.
Each wolf calls with its own ‘voice.’
Tracking wild animals can provide lots of valuable data. New research suggests audio recordings of wild wolves can replace the typical radio collars, which can be expensive and intrusive.
The Cape peninsula moss frog is smaller than 20mm and is, therefore, hard to monitor.
A robust technique using the wonders of digital media has helped researchers understand how threatened species like frogs are faring on our globally changing planet.
Urban noise pushes birds to sing in high pitch and ship sound deafens whales and dolphins.

Noise pollution, whether on land or under water, can affect animals in interesting – and not always positive – ways.
Rapid changes in technology are transforming the contributions ordinary citizens can make to scientific research.
The next Ella Fitzgerald? Every wolf has a distinctive soulful style.
