Often, microphones will pick up the sound of falling trees, elks snacking and coyotes howling.<p>In even the most remote parts of the park, however, researchers are also hearing airplane noise 15 percent of the time.<p>Setting up temporary recording stations in 20 different locations, technicians say that there's virtually no place left in America that's untouched by ambient human noise — and that this may be stressful to wildlife.
