Research in the Parks lab focuses on the ecology and evolution of acoustic signaling. Diverse research topics in the lab span the fields of behavioral ecology, bioacoustics, biological oceanography, and conservation biology. Current projects in the lab involve studies of marine and terrestrial animals ranging from studies characterizing the acoustic behavior of species to experimental studies investigating the behavioral functions of sounds and the impacts of noise on communication. Research interests include studying the use of sound for communication, the evolution of acoustic signals, soundscapes, hearing abilities, and the impacts of noise on development, behavior, sound production and reception.
