Doug Nowacek and I wanted to bring the following recent contribution to 
your attention.

A special theme section entitled "Acoustics in Marine Ecology" just 
published in the journal Marine Ecology Progress series is now 
available.  This compliation of empirical and review papers includes an 
introduction and overview of the relevant issues, along with a call for 
new research paradigms and funding strategies, as well as manuscripts in 
three general subject areas: (1) the use of passive listening systems to 
measure and monitor marine ecosystems; (2) active acoustic technologies 
to explore habitat use and predator-prey behavior; and (3) impacts of 
anthropogenic sound on the marine environment.  A weblink to the 
abstracts and a listing of the contributed articles are given below.
