    Do We Really Understand Why Whales Sing?

    Do We Really Understand Why Whales Sing?

    In general, animal song is thought to have several specific characteristics including being restricted to males, having a territorial purpose, and being used to attract a mate. Join marine acoustics expert John Hildebrand to learn how the singing characteristics in some whale species challenges this generalization and how long term trends in whale song still present a mystery to scientists.
