The physical nature of the vocal tract results in the production of formants during vocalisation. In some animals (including humans), receivers can derive information (such as body size) about senderExpand

Inflation of the esophagus and vocal tract filtering in ring doves
SUMMARY Ring doves vocalize with their beaks and nostrils closed, exhaling into inflatable chambers in the head and neck region. The source sound produced at the syrinx contains a fundamentalExpand

Nonlinear source-filter coupling in phonation: vocal exercises.
Nonlinear source-filter coupling has been demonstrated in computer simulations, in excised larynx experiments, and in physical models, but not in a consistent and unequivocal way in natural humanExpand

Peripheral mechanisms for vocal production in birds – differences and similarities to human speech and singing
Song production in songbirds is a model system for studying learned vocal behavior. As in humans, bird phonation involves three main motor systems (respiration, vocal organ and vocal tract). TheExpand

Mammalian laryngseal air sacs add variability to the vocal tract impedance: physical and computational modeling.
Cavities branching off the main vocal tract are ubiquitous in nonhumans. Mammalian air sacs exist in human relatives, including all four great apes, but only a substantially reduced version exists inExpand

Songbirds tune their vocal tract to the fundamental frequency of their song.
In human speech, the sound generated by the larynx is modified by articulatory movements of the upper vocal tract, which acts as a variable resonant filter concentrating energy near particularExpand

The harmonic-to-noise ratio applied to dog barks.
Dog barks are typically a mixture of regular components and irregular (noisy) components. The regular part of the signal is given by a series of harmonics and is most probably due to regularExpand

Nonlinear acoustics in the pant hoots of common chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes): vocalizing at the edge.
Common chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) "pant hoots" are multi-call events that build from quiet, consistently harmonic introductory sounds to loud, screamlike "climax" calls with acoustic irregularitiesExpand

A Cervid Vocal Fold Model Suggests Greater Glottal Efficiency in Calling at High Frequencies
Male Rocky Mountain elk (Cervus elaphus nelsoni) produce loud and high fundamental frequency bugles during the mating season, in contrast to the male European Red Deer (Cervus elaphus scoticus) whoExpand

Deer mothers are sensitive to infant distress vocalizations of diverse mammalian species.
Acoustic structure, behavioral context, and caregiver responses to infant distress vocalizations (cries) are similar across mammals, including humans. Are these similarities enough for animals toExpand
