The Biophony: Aural Understanding of the Natural World

Often, science (among most other pursuits) focuses on the overt display of visual analysis. Through lists, data tables, graphs and analytic pictures, researchers draw their conclusions. Often the aural aspect of any subject is harder for us to quantify and is thus cast aside as belonging to the subjective side of the human experience. As the modern technological society slowly realizes the devastating impact of noise on human health, Bernie Krause, an eco-acoustician, has studied the impact of human aural evasiveness on wild habitats. What he has found opens a whole other perspective on how we understand the effects of human encroachment on undeveloped land.
