Many species are currently experiencing anthropogenically driven environmental changes. Among these changes, increasing noise levels are specifically a problem for species relying on acoustic communication. Recent evidence suggests that some species adjust their acoustic signals to man‐made noise. However, it is unknown whether these changes occur through short‐term and reversible adjustments by behavioral plasticity or through long‐term adaptations by evolutionary change. Using behavioral… Expand
