Subject: Help needed with evaluating spectrogram similarity

 I am writing to you today to ask whether you would be able to either do an
 evaluation of spectrogram similarity and/or whether you know of anyone who
 might be interested in doing so and perhaps would be so nice to forward this
 message.  I am studying acoustic call dialect similarities among killer
 whale communities in the northeastern Pacific. The call dialects appear to
 be learned and the degree of call similarity roughly matches both social
 distance and maternal relatedness among groups within communities. The first
 part of my study deals with dialect similarity among groups of
 non-associating communities, the second one deals with the question of
 whether dialect divergence is solely a product of drift (in this case
 cultural drift) or whether selection (again cultural selection) plays a role
 in the existing dialect similarity. To help me out you would need to go to
 the following web site <a  href=""; 
rel="nofollow"></a> and if you have a
 moment do as many of the presented spectrogram similarity evaluations as you
 can. Your participation in this evaluation procedure is greatly appreciated.
 I am also interested in any comment you might have about the procedure and
 the other context on the web site, but I already apologize for not being
 able to respond right away to every comment I might receive. I will, of
 course, respond to inquiries containing problems with the evaluations. I am
 in total thesis writing mode and time is running through my fingers. Thanks
 so much for your help and understanding.
