Please reply to Christine Erbe. Cheers Holger.


Dear Colleagues,

The Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme (PACS) is currently undergoing a revision. PACS is a hierarchical subject classification scheme designed to classify and categorize the literature of physics and astronomy.

On behalf of the Animal Bioacoustics Committee of the Acoustical Society of America, I would like to ask your suggestions for and feedback on potential PACS subjects specifically for animal bioacoustics. We can list up to 20 PACS subject headings. Perhaps think about the work that you do and how it could best be classified, or what headings it might best fit under.

Simply starting with the scope of animal bioacoustics from the ASA website, such subject headings could be:

1. animal communication and associated behavior
2. animal biosonar
3. animal sound production anatomy and neurophysiology
4. auditory capacities and auditory mechanisms of animals
5. effects of man-made noise on animals
6. acoustic characterization of animal habitats (ambient noise, sound propagation)
7. passive acoustic monitoring of animals
8. active acoustic applications in animal bioacoustics
9. instrumentation for animal bioacoustics
10. signal processing for animal bioacoustic data analysis

I look forward to your ideas. Please respond directly to me and not to the entire list. If you would like to participate in small-group discussions to finalize the subject headings, please let me know. The list must be finalized prior to the ASA meeting in Baltimore, April 19-23, 2010.

Thank you very much for your thoughts.
