Abstract:

Acoustic communication plays a major role in the behavioral ecology of various marine organisms (Busnel 1963), especially marine mammals and fish. However, little attention has been given to acoustic communication in marine crustaceans (Popper et al. 2001). Furthermore, the interplay between anthropogenic noise and the acoustic ecology of marine crustaceans remains virtually unexplored. In this study, we investigated the acoustic environment of a benthic stomatopod crustacean, the California mantis shrimp (Hemisquilla californiensis, Crustacea, Stomatopoda).
