Science and Society | The Sounds of Life

The natural world is filled with an endless variety of communication. A surprising array of species—including many insects, turtles, fish, corals, and plants—communicate by sound; even the planet itself is part of the chorus. Because most of these conversations take place outside humans’ narrow range of hearing, we have been unaware of the extent of this vast soundscape until recently. Now, scientists are using new digital technologies to eavesdrop on the natural world, and they are applying artificial intelligence to decode some of the auditory signals--perhaps paving the way for limited interspecies dialogues.
