The distribution of the three friendly close-range vocalization types known in the Felidae was plotted on a recently published phylogeny of the cat family (Felidae) based on sequence comparisons of two mitochondrial DNA genes and other molecular and biochemical characters, with extrapolated divergence ages of its various lineages. It was found to be congruent with this phylogeny. One of the sound types is likely to be present in 30 species of the family (documented in 22 so far), another is… Expand

Interspecific variation of acoustic signals in Mediterranean gobies (Perciformes, Gobiidae) : comparative analysis and evolutionary outlook
TLDR
Congruence between the acoustic affinities among species and that obtained by means of morphological and genetic data is suggested, and first hypotheses on the evolution of acoustic communication and the associated mechanisms in this fish group are suggested. Expand
Phylogenetic signal in the vocalizations of vocal learning and vocal non-learning birds
Some animal vocalizations develop reliably in the absence of relevant experience, but an intriguing subset of animal vocalizations is learned: they require acoustic models during ontogeny in order toExpand
Male vocal behavior and phylogeny in deer
TLDR
It is indicated that male vocalizations constitute plausible phylogenetic characters in this taxon and evolutionary scenarios for the vocal characters are discussed in relation with associated behaviors. Expand
Derived vocalizations of geladas (Theropithecus gelada) and the evolution of vocal complexity in primates
TLDR
A comparison of two closely related primates that differ in their ecology and social structures found that the socially complex geladas have larger vocal repertoires, highlighting the utility of using closely related species to better understand the function of vocal complexity. Expand
Geographical variation in sound production in the anemonefish Amphiprion akallopisos
TLDR
The geographic comparison is the first to demonstrate ‘dialects’ in a marine fish species, and differences in sound parameters suggest genetic divergence between these two populations of Amphiprion akallopisos. Expand
Anatomical Peculiarities of the Vocal Tract in Felids
The fourty species (Wilson and Reeder 2005) of felids (family Felidae) are all strictly carnivorous and perfectly designed to capture live prey. The family is divided into two subfamilies, i.e., theExpand
TERRESTRIAL CARNIVORE SOUNDS WITH REPEATED RAPID ALTERNATION OF TWO STRUCTURALLY DIFFERENT COMPONENTS: AN INDICATION OF COMPLEX SOUND PRODUCTION MECHANISMS IN MAMMALS?
TLDR
It is argued that a rapid and regular repetitive alternation between two structurally different component sound elements is indicative of different morphological structures or mechanisms in the larynx or supralaryngeal vocal tract, contributing to sound production or modification in a temporally coordinated way. Expand
Sound production in four damselfish (Dascyllus) species: phyletic relationships?
TLDR
Large variations in sound length were found between Dascyllus species, whereas differences in interpulse duration were found to be variable between populations, suggesting that females would need to sample more than one sound and potentially use other cues to discriminate between species. Expand
Correlated Evolution of White Spots on Ears and Closed Habitat Preferences in Felids
  • I. Galván
  • Biology
  • Journal of Mammalian Evolution
  • 2019
TLDR
Findings indicate that some subtle pigment traits have fulfilled a significant role in determining the success of habitat occupancy by felids and possibly other mammals, which in turn has driven the evolutionary maintenance of such traits. Expand
Vocal stereotypy in the rodent genera Peromyscus and Onychomys (Neotominae): taxonomic signature and call design
TLDR
There is a dichotomy between Onychomys and Peromyscus in the use of frequency, a genus-specific pattern identified previously among other peromyscine lineages. Expand

Acoustic communication in the genus Lynx (Mammalia: Felidae) - comparative survey and phylogenetic interpretation
TLDR
Based on observations in captive animals and sonagraphic analysis a description of acoustic signals in Lynx lynx and L. rufus is presented and the acoustic repertoire of the genus Lynx shows probable synapomorphies with that of species in the genus Felis s. Expand

Hyoid structure, laryngeal anatomy, and vocalization in felids (Mammalia: Carnivora: Felidae)
TLDR
New findings on laryngeal anatomy with respect to vocahzation and the hyoidean apparatus in the family Felidae are discussed, and it is not possible at present to decide whether a fully ossified hyoid automatically causes a species' ability to purr. Expand
Functions of Wild Gorilla 'Close' Calls. I. Repertoire, Context, and Interspecific Comparison
Individuals in social groups of a number of species produce and exchange among themselves frequent, quiet vocalisations. The function of most such vocalisations, here termed 'close' calls, remainsExpand
Development of sound communication in mammals
TLDR
This chapter derives some common foundations and guidelines concerning the development of sound communication in mammals that may be helpful not only for organizing research but also and particularly for understanding ontogenetic and phylogenetic sequences of development ofsound communication.

Molecular distance and divergence time in carnivores and primates.
TLDR
The results suggest that estimates of molecular distance and divergence time are highly correlated and that rates of molecular evolution are not constant; rather, in general they decline with increasing divergence time in a linear fashion. Expand
A MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF THE FELIDAE: IMMUNOLOGICAL DISTANCE
TLDR
The phylogenetic distances between 34 of the 37 extant species of Felidae were estimated using albumin immunological distances (AID) and the derived topology is highly consistent with the karyological disposition of these species, as well as with the fossil record of this family. Expand
Inheritance of stereotyped gibbon calls
TLDR
It is found that in female hybrids, the patterns of the loud and stereotyped ‘great-calls’ show no evidence of learning from parents, and appear to be under strong genetic control. Expand
Acoustic Communication by Fissiped Carnivores
TLDR
It is probably no accident that wolf howling—unlike other acoustic signals of carnivores—is one of the best-studied mammalian vocalizations. Expand
