You are correct. I was interested in potential impacts of non-audible sounds. Apologies for not being more clear.
I figured the most data would be for humans and from what I have been able to find so far, there isn't a lot out there (probably more for infrasound compared to ultrasound).

Typically, impacts are only considered for those noises that fall into a species auditory range, but I wanted to know more about potential impacts/likelihood for impacts for those sounds outside the auditory range (assuming they would be more physiological, rather than behavioral, where an animal would have to hear the sound in order to respond). I am coming at this from a bit different angle, since I am considering this in the context of non-human hearing ranges (thus, infra- and ultrasonic ranges may be different depending on the species), specifically for marine species (fish, marine mammals, and sea turtles). In order not to clog up everyone's email boxes, you can respond to me directly, if you like (email in my signature below). Thanks for your help, Amy -- ____________________________________ Amy R.
