Darters (Perciformes, Percidae), sculpins (Perciformes, Cottidae), and gobioids (Gobiiformes, Gobioidei) exhibit convergent life history traits, including a benthic lifestyle and a cavity nesting spawning mode. Soniferous species within these taxa produce pulsed and/or tonal sounds with peak frequencies below 200 Hz (with some exceptions), primarily in(More)
Geographical variation in acoustic signals has been demonstrated in many taxa, including freshwater fishes. Previous studies have investigated variation in acoustic signaling between populations naturally isolated into separate drainages. However, the effect of man-made habitat modifications such as dams on the evolution of communication in fishes in(More)
