Acoustic Ecology

Acoustic ecology, sometimes called ecoacoustics or soundscape studies, is the relationship, mediated through sound, between living beings and their environmentAcoustic ecology is a discipline that analyzes how we interpret, and are affected by natural and artificial sounds around us.

Among the expanded expressions of acoustic ecology are:
- increasing attention to the sonic impacts of road and airport construction,  
- the broadening of bioacoustics (the use of sound by animals) to consider the subjective and objective responses of animals to human noise, with ocean noise capturing the most attention.
