You wrote about two weeks ago inquiring about the vocalizations of whales.  I 
have found a reference that may help you some.  The Natural History of Whales 
and Dolphins by Peter G.H. Evans.  1987. Published by: Facts On File, Inc., 
460 Park Ave. So., NY, NY 10016

There is a detailed chapter on sound, listing many species of mysticetes and 
odontocetes, their sound type, Freq. Range in Hz, Maximum energy in Hz, 
Signal Duration, Comments and a listing of the source of that information.

If you cannot find this book, or a similar source, contact me again and I'll 
send you these pages.

Good luck again
