1. In breeding assemblages ofPseudacris streckeri the mating call of one individual often occurs immediately after that of another. Calling by one male then becomes entrained to that of another even though their intrinsic call periods are different. The mechanism underlying entrainment was analysed by presenting acoustic stimuli to isolated males in the laboratory. 2. When trains of acoustic stimuli at various rates were presented, males could entrain to stimuli with periods up to 60 msec (18… CONTINUE READING
