Brandon Southall and I would like to bring the following recent contribution to 
your attention.

A special theme section entitled "Acoustics in Marine Ecology" just published 
in the journal Marine Ecology Progress series is now available.  This compliation of 
empirical and review papers includes an introduction and overview of the relevant issues, 
along with a call for new research paradigms and funding strategies, as well as 
manuscripts in three general subject areas: (1) the use of passive listening systems to 
measure and monitor marine ecosystems; (2) active acoustic technologies to explore 
habitat use and predator-prey behavior; and (3) impacts of anthropogenic sound on the 
marine environment.  A weblink to the abstracts and a listing of the contributed articles 
are given below.
