Hi Marmamers,

i'm seerching for publications or even presentation focused on the use of 
T-POD to record click signals of bottlenose dolphins. I have always worked 
with hydrophones to store and gather signals at high frequencyes such as 
echolocation signals. I would like to know how does it work and if it's 
really helpful to study dolphin's behaviour, or if it's useful just for 
considering the presence/absence of cetacean.
For the moment i have found the following articles, that unfortunately are 
focused on Harbor Porpoises:

Culik, Koschinski, Tregenza, and Ellis, (2001) Reactions of harbor porpoises 
Phocoena phocoena and herring Clupea harengus to acoustic alarms. Mar Ecol 
Prog Ser.211:255-260,2001

Berggren, P., Carlstrom, J., Tregenza, N. (2002) Mitigation of Small 
Cetacean ByCatch; Evaluation of Acoustic Alarms. Report to European 
Commission on Study Contract 00/031.

Englund, A., OCadhla, O., Phipott, E. (2003) Can PODs save the day? Lessons 
from Broadhaven. Poster at European Cetacean Society Conference, Las Palmas, 

Thank you all for your help.
