    Marine mammal populations and ocean noise, By Jotaro Kujo but this was the closest she’d ever been. He held onto her hands, letting her take wobbly steps towards the ocean he loved so much. She watched as the tide lightly hit her feet, and then she turned, quickly grabbing onto his leg and sinking to the floor, her legs not quite strong.   Interest in marine mammals has increased dramatically in the last few decades, as evidenced by the number of books, scientific papers, and conferences devoted to these animals. Nowadays, a conference on marine mammals can attract between one and two thousand scientists from around the world. This upsurge of interest has resulted in a body of knowledge which, in many cases, 5/5(1).

    These more recent habitat impacts now place more marine mammal species at risk of extinction, even those not formerly at risk due to harvesting. Various aspects of marine mammal demography also contribute to their extinction vulnerability. By the beginning of the twentieth century, many marine mammal populations had reached perilously low levels. Books shelved as marine-mammals: The Florida Manatee: Biology and Conservation by Roger L. Reep, The Odyssey of KP2: An Orphan Seal, a Marine Biologist.

    Committee on Characterizing Biologically Significant Marine Mammal Behavior () Marine mammal populations and ocean noise: Determining when noise causes biologically significant effects. National Academies Press, Washington, by:   Although hunting pressures have declined, marine mammals still suffer from low numbers and inadvertent human activities such as certain fishing methods, boating and shipping traffic, and increasing ocean noise. WHOI scientists have conducted marine mammal research for decades, from making the first underwater recordings of marine mammal sounds.

About this book. A series of marine mammal strandings, lawsuits, legislative hearings and, most recently, a report from the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy, have all drawn attention to the subject of how ocean noise affects marine mammals.

protecting marine mammal habitat and regulating cumulative effects. One approach for protecting marine mammals might be to monitor their populations and initiate protective measures for populations in decline.

However, we cannot estimate trends precisely for most marine mammal populations, and by the time a decline is detected, it may be too late.

[National Research Council (U.S.). Committee on Characterizing Biologically Significant Marine Mammal Behavior.; National Academies Press (U.S.)]. This book discusses, among many other topics, just how well marine mammals hear, how noisy the oceans have become, and what effects these new sounds have on marine mammals.

The baseline of ambient noise, the sounds produced by machines and mammals, the sensitivity of marine mammal hearing, and the reactions of marine mammals are also examined.

Commission on Ocean Policy report, attention has been drawn to the subject of how ocean noise affects marine mammals. Ocean Noise and Marine Mammals reviews sources of noise in the ocean environment, what is known of the responses of marine mammals to acoustic disturbance, and what models exist for describing ocean noise and marine mammal responses.

Review of the literature and discussion of how noise impacts marine mammals. Richardson et al. () provided a comprehensive summary of published and gray literature data on marine mammal responses to specific noise sources.

Although the literature continues to expand and many valuable new studies have appeared, most recent publications have tended to provide variations on themes rather than new data at variance with the conclusions summarized by Richardson et al.
