We are pleased to announce that the 2019 EFFECTS OF NOISE ON AQUATIC LIFE conference will take place in Den Haag (The Netherlands) from July 7-12, 2019. The meeting will follow in the tradition of the earlier meetings, most recently in Budapest (2013) and Dublin (2016).
We are delighted to announce our four keynote speakers. While the focus of the conference is on marine animals and potential effects of sound, most all of the issues we discuss are just as germane to terrestrial animals. Indeed, we have found that often-times, research questions, approaches, and findings from animals in terrestrial environments (including humans) are far ahead of studies in the aquatic environment and have much to teach us. Thus, a highlight of our past few conferences has been to invite colleagues working on issues that are somewhat parallel to those that our participants deal with, but from a perspective of terrestrial animals, mammals, and even humans.
