Whale sounds are used by whales for different kinds of communication.. The mechanisms used to produce sound vary from one family of cetaceans to another. Marine mammals, such as whales, dolphins, and porpoises, are much more dependent on sound for communication and sensation than are land mammals, because other senses are of limited effectiveness in water.

Whale vocalizations are the sounds made by whales to communicate. The word "song" is used in particular to describe the pattern of regular and predictable sounds made by some species of whales (notably the humpback) in a way that is reminiscent of human singing. Humans produce sound by expelling air through the larynx.
Sound waves travel through the water. Upon striking an object in the water, the sound waves bounce back at the whale. These vibrations are received through fatty tissues in the jaw, which is then rerouted into the ear-bone and into the brain where the vibrations are interpreted.
The 52-hertz whale is an individual whale of unidentified species which calls at the very unusual frequency of 52 Hz.This pitch is a much higher frequency than that of the other whale species with migration patterns most closely resembling this whale's – the blue whale (10–39 Hz) or fin whale (20 Hz).

Plus, "baleen whale" is more transparent semantically. I suggest rewriting "Baleen whales (formally called mysticetes)" as "Baleen whales, or mysticetes,". Also, the title "Mysticete whale sound production" is redundant. Shorten it to "Mysticete sound production".--Solomonfromfinland 02:04, 27 September 2012 (UTC) Requested move
Whales are a large marine mammal species which live in the ocean. Like other mammals, they breathe oxygen from the air, have a small amount of hair, and are warm blooded. There are two basic kinds of whales, and about 100 species. People use the word whale in different ways.
Killer whales are popular with whale watchers, which may stress the whales and alter their behaviour, particularly if boats approach too closely or block their lines of travel. The Exxon Valdez oil spill adversely affected killer whales in Prince William Sound and Alaska's Kenai Fjords region. Eleven members (about half) of one resident pod ...
The blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) is a marine mammal belonging to the baleen whale suborder Mysticeti. Reaching a maximum confirmed length of 29.9 meters (98 feet) and weight of 173 tonnes (190 tons), it is the largest animal known to have ever existed.
In human physiology and psychology, sound is the reception of such waves and their perception by the brain. Only acoustic waves that have frequencies lying between about 20 Hz and 20 kHz, the audio frequency range, elicit an auditory percept in humans.
Free whale sound effects and whale sound to use in your video projects. Blue whale, whale clicks, humpback and whale songs. made available for personal non-commercial projects. These sounds do not come with a license for commercial use. If you have a commercial and professional project it would be wise to license professional sound effects.
