    J Acoust Soc Am 107:3509-17. 2000

    Proc Biol Sci 271:1051-7. 2004
    ..Singing at these times represents either low-cost opportunistic advertising by (perhaps relatively few) males to court females that failed to conceive during the winter, and/or possibly an intrasexual display...

    Janelle L Morano
    Bioacoustics Research Program, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York 14850, USA
    J Acoust Soc Am 132:1207-12. 2012
    ..Short-INI and high note abundance correspond to the fin whale reproductive season. The temporal variability of INI may be a mechanism by which fin whale individuals encode and communicate a variety of behaviorally relevant information...
