An analysis of the natural bioacoustic signals made by two closely related African fishes (P. adspersus and P. isidori) revealed that these species separated along several acoustic dimensions that are likely to be important for species isolation. Both species produced grunts that were composed of a trains of pulses, but the pulse repetition rates were distinctly different (56 +/- 3 s.d. vs 44 +/- 4 s.d. pps). Complex tone bursts (moans) were also used, but the species differed substantially in… CONTINUE READING
