How much is needed for sound identification ?

Dear List members,

We are currently running several experiments on environmental sounds identification vs image identification.

The literature in hearing seems to be quite poor whereas a lot of work have been done in the visual domain.

Does anybody have know studies that tried to measure how long of a sound is needed to get the identification of the sound ("it's a bird") or get it's super-ordonate category ("it's an animal") ?

Thanks in advance for any references.
