  • Abstract The cardiac response of mallard ducklings, Anas platyrhynchos , has a characteristic pattern, which varies according to which of three conspecific calls, or an artificial sound, is presented. Ducklings were played one of four acoustic stimuli, each of which has well-documented behavioural efects: maternal alarm calls, maternal assembly calls, duckling distress calls and a synthetic control stimulus. The evoked changes in heart rate consisted of brief phasic responses to the playbacks… CONTINUE READING
