Cricket frogs (Acris crepitans) occupy a variety of acoustically different habitats ranging from pine forest to open grassland. There is geographic variation in their calls and the tuning of their basilar papilla (BP) correlated with habitat. Here, we characterize the spectral content of environmental noise from two habitats, one a pine forest (Stengl) and one a grassland (Gill) habitat. We then used rounded exponential filter functions based on the mean tuning of auditory fibers in Stengl and… CONTINUE READING
