... levels of the birds' cliffside nesting habitats. Yet the most sensitive thresholds (measured in a very quiet, semi-anechoic chamber) were below these ambient noise conditions. This suggests that at times, the natural soundscape of the cliffside habitat would mask these animals' hearing abilities (but see...

... and locating prey and predators. Many terrestrial animals increase the amplitude of their acoustic signals to partially compensate for the masking effect of noise (the Lombard response), but it has been suggested that cetaceans almost fully compensate with amplitude adjustments for increasing noise levels...

... was about twice as high for the murre (0.0071±0.0098 µV; mean±s.d.) compared with the puffin (0.0029±0.0040 µV). Consequently, lower amplitude responses in the murre seemed to be masked by neurophysiological noise. This noise (or the lower detectable responses) may have stemmed from multiple sources...

... al.,1999 ; Spanjer,2006 ; Gillam and McCracken,2007 ) or on both were the reason. Impairment could be caused by the masking of relevant sounds or echoes and by the difficulty of processing several auditory streams simultaneously( Barber et al., 2003 ). The fact that we did not observe any change...

... is controlled by the state of light or dark adaptation similar to masking phenomena in higher vertebrates where light directly regulates motor activity. We propose that regulation of motor activity by photic stimuli in zebrafish larvae serves a behavioral goal of maximizing exposure to well lit environments...

..., and their sound pressure levels determined. Hearing sensitivities were measured under quiet lab conditions and in the presence of these masking noises at levels encountered in the field,using the auditory evoked potentials (AEP) recording technique. The Lusitanian toadfish is a hearing generalist, with best...

... specialists, we chose the common carp ( Cyprinus carpio , Cyprinidae) and for the hearing generalists the European perch ( Perca fluviatilis , Percidae). Data show that the carp's hearing is only moderately masked by the quiet habitat noise level of standing waters (mean threshold shift 9 dB) but is heavily...
