The purpose of the present experiments was to identify the change in species-specific perception that underlies the aurally deprived ducklings' lack pf preference or discrimination in the mallard versus chicken call test. Among other acoustic differences, the mallard and chicken maternal calls differ in repetition rate (3.7 and 2.3 notes/sec, respectively). The present experiments showed the dimension of repetition rate to be uppermost in the perceptual hierarchy underlying the auditory aspect… CONTINUE READING
