Habitat Associations of Song Characteristics in Phylloscopus and Hippolais Warblers

  title={Habitat Associations of Song Characteristics in Phylloscopus and Hippolais Warblers},
  author={Alexander V. Badyaev},
Ai•sTRACT.--Bird-song functions, such as mate attraction, species recognition, and territory defense, are closely linked to individual fitness. Thus, habitat characteristics that affect song transmission and degradation should exert a strong influence on the evolution of song attributes. Whereas different acoustic environments may influence the evolution of song characteristics, factors such as body size and evolutionary history of taxa are expected to constrain the amount of environmental… CONTINUE READING
