They found that levels of the whales&rsquo; stress levels fell when ship traffic was reduced as a security measure and ocean noise to fall by half.</p> <p> <br /> &quot;What this study has shown is that they are having a measurable physiological stress response to the noise in their environment,&rdquo; Rolland <a href="http://www.livescience.com/18367-ship-noise-stresses-whales.html">told LiveScience.</a></p> <p> <br /> The researchers believe that these high stress levels may cause behavioral changes in the whales, as well as impacting their immune and reproductive systems, <a href="http://www.livescience.com/18367-ship-noise-stresses-whales.html">LiveScience says.</a></p> <p> <a href="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/9068202/Shipping-noise-causes-major-stress-in-whales.html"><br /> <em>The Telegraph </em>explains</a> that ships&rsquo; propellers emit sound in the same frequency range that some whales use for communicating. It cites previous studies which have shown the whales change their calling patterns in noisy places.</p> <p> <br /> &quot;We knew whales changed the frequency of their calls to adapt to the ship noise, but these work shows it is not merely an annoyance - it is having a physical effect,&quot; the newspaper quotes Rolland as saying.</p> <p><a
