Dolphin Cognition and Behavior: A Comparative Approach

By Ronald J. Schusterman; Jeanette A. Thomas et al. | Go to book overview

attempted by Bastian ( 1966), in which it was hoped that the dolphins could be induced to communicate arbitrary information over an acoustic channel. At the least, a knowledge of the existence of a mimicry capability in captivity will alert field researchers to the potential for use of the whistles in natural communication.


ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

The dolphin studies were supported by grants to Louis M. Herman from the National Science Foundation ( Grants BNS77-16882 and BNS81-09653) and from the Center for Field Research, Belmont, Massachusetts. The work was helped greatly by discussions with Louis M. Herman and James P. Wolz. James Wolz also assisted in some of the judgements of vocal mimicry. I also wish to thank the many graduate and undergraduate students who helped in the testing of the dolphins, including Amy Suzuki, Gordon Bauer, Joseph Mobley, and Melissa Shyan.
