Pollimyrus adspersus is a fish that uses simple sounds for communication and has auditory specializations for sound-pressure detection. The sounds are species-specific, and the sounds of individuals are sufficiently stereotyped that they could mediate individual recognition. Behavioral measurements are presented indicating that Pollimyrus probably can make species and individual discriminations on the basis of acoustic cues. Interclick interval (ICI; 10-40 ms) and frequency (100-1400 Hz… CONTINUE READING
