    You might try looking on the Web. There has not been a lot of research
    done on communication in this species itself, though a woman named
    Denise Herzing has conducted a lot of work on spotteds. But try also
    look for work on bottlenose dolphin communication, since a LOT has been
    done there and some of it is probably applicable to other species. try
    searching on "signature whistle" to start - dolphins seem to have unique
    whistles which identify them from other members of the pod (kinda like
    different voices in people).
