Acoustic communication signals, both their production and reception, are intertwined with all aspects of an animal’s biology. An intuitive example is the inverse relationship between maximum signaling frequency and body size; which is well supported across a wide range of animal taxa. But this same relationship, between maximum frequency and body size, also occurs for acoustic sense organs, however the relationship is a bit more complex. The maximum and resonant frequencies of the tympanic… Expand
