Because Bernie is too bloody modest to post this to the group, I will. This
guy deserves all the plaudits out there, an inspiration to us all.....

Jeff Hull is a journalist writing an article about these efforts for 
the NYT Sunday Magazine and was contacting individuals for their 
responses. I was blown away. FYI

>Dear Mr. Hull:
>Thank you for introducing Bernie Krause to me. When you first 
>introduced his name to me, along with "niche hypothesis" and 
>"biophony," I assumed that it was all a New Age thing, of little 
>interest to scientists.
>I was wrong. Bernie Krause and his niche theory are the real thing. 
>His originality, research, and above all basic knowledge of the 
>sound environments in nature are impressive. The idea of music 
>originating in the sound communication systems of wild animals 
>(including insects?) is a sound and provocative hypothesis. I admire 
>also his attention to the preservation of ancestral-level cultures 
>for their own value but also as a testing ground for theory on human 
>behavioral evolution.
>Best wishes,
>Edward O. Wilson
