We broadcast synthetic call notes to male Eleutherodactylus coqui treefrogs in their natural habitat. The frogs avoided acoustic overlap with relatively long duration tone stimuli by calling only within the short silent interval between tones. We also observed a temporal change in call pattern in response to tone stimuli of various frequencies and intensities. This response is the basis for construction of a behavioural auditory threshold function for this species. This function does not show a… CONTINUE READING
