Patterns of advertisement call evolution in toads and chorus frogs
Patterns of evolution in the acoustic signals of two groups of anuran amphibians were examined. Call character matrices for clades ofBufo(Bufonidae) andPseudacris(Hylidae) were derived from analysisExpand

Evidence that female preferences have shaped male signal evolution in a clade of specialized plant-feeding insects
Mate choice is considered an important influence in the evolution of mating signals and other sexual traits, and—since divergence in sexual traits causes reproductive isolation—it can be an agent ofExpand

THE ROLE OF ENVIRONMENTAL SELECTION IN INTRASPECIFIC DIVERGENCE OF MATE RECOGNITION SIGNALS IN THE CRICKET FROG, ACRIS CREPITANS
Divergence of mate recognition signals between closely related taxa is a crucial component in the process of speciation because it can give rise to ethological isolation. The process by which mateExpand

Wind-induced noise alters signaler and receiver behavior in vibrational communication
Noise that masks communication signals can affect the evolution of signal form and decisions about when and where to communicate. For the many invertebrates that communicate using plant-borneExpand

Host shifts favor vibrational signal divergence in Enchenopa binotata treehoppers
For specialized herbivorous insects, shifts to novel host plants can have dramatic evolutionary consequences. If mating traits diverge, assortative mating can develop between ancestral and novel hostExpand

Vocalizations of Eight Species of Atelopus (Anura: Bufonidae) With Comments on Communication in the Genus
Vocalizations of frogs of the genus Atelopus include three discrete types of signals: pulsed calls, pure tone calls, and short calls. Repertoire composition is conservative across species.Expand

Plants respond to leaf vibrations caused by insect herbivore chewing
Plant germination and growth can be influenced by sound, but the ecological significance of these responses is unclear. We asked whether acoustic energy generated by the feeding of insect herbivoresExpand

THE RECONSTRUCTION OF ANCESTRAL CHARACTER STATES
The problem of error in the phylogenetic reconstruction of ancestral character states is explored by developing the model of Frumhoff and Reeve (1994). Information about the evolutionary rate ofExpand
