The cicada species Tibicina haematodes and Cicada orni are two sympatric species often inhabiting vineyards. We show that they occupy two distinct levels: males of T. haematodes produce their calling songs from a high position in vine foliage while males of C. orni call from a low position near the ground on vine trunks. Experiments consisting of broadcasting and re-recording experimental signals in natural habitats from low and high positions show that signals are more and more modified as… 
Calling songs of sympatric and allopatric populations of Cicada barbara and C. orni (Hemiptera: Cicadidae) on the Iberian Peninsula
TLDR
Calling songs of the sibling species Cicada barbara and C. orni were studied in sympatric and allopatric populations on the Iberian Peninsula and it is assumed that the calling songs are the most important premating isolating mechanism corresponding to the specific-mate recognition systems of these species of cicadas.
Acoustic signals in cicada courtship behaviour (order Hemiptera, genus Tibicina )
TLDR
Differences in courtship song structure between two pairs of sympatric species, respectively T. c.
Spatial Mixing between Calling Males of Two Closely Related, Sympatric Crickets Suggests Beneficial Heterospecific Interactions in a NonAdaptive Radiation.
TLDR
A pair of broadly sympatric, closely related cricket species from a nonadaptive radiation in Hawaii are studied, finding that calling males of the 2 species are highly mixed both vertically and horizontally and showed the same preference for calling sites, and calling males were found to form mixed-species calling clusters.
Vertical stratification in an acoustically communicating ensiferan assemblage of a tropical evergreen forest in southern India
This study provides the first quantitative description of vertical stratification in calling heights of ensiferan species constituting most of the dry-season nocturnal acoustic community of an
THE ASSEMBLAGE OF ACOUSTICALLY COMMUNICATING CRICKETS OF A TROPICAL EVERGREEN FOREST IN SOUTHERN INDIA: CALL DIVERSITY AND DIEL CALLING PATTERNS
TLDR
The first description of the call structures of twenty ensiferan species constituting the nocturnal acoustic community of an evergreen forest in Southern India is provided, suggesting that the acoustic community has been almost completely sampled.
SENSORY DRIVE DOES NOT EXPLAIN REPRODUCTIVE CHARACTER DISPLACEMENT OF MALE ACOUSTIC SIGNALS IN THE UPLAND CHORUS FROG (PSEUDACRIS FERIARUM)
Biotic and abiotic factors have been proposed to explain patterns of reproductive character displacement, but which factor is most important to character displacement of acoustic signals is not
Microhabitat selection in an assemblage of crickets (Orthoptera: Ensifera) of a tropical evergreen forest in Southern India
TLDR
Habitat selection is a universal aspect of animal ecology that has important fitness consequences and may drive patterns of spatial organisation in ecological communities and this work highlights the need to understand more fully the drivers of habitat selection.
Contrasting Propagation of Natural Calls of Two Anuran Species from the South American Temperate Forest
The acoustic adaptation hypothesis predicts that sound communication signals have an optimal relationship with animals’ native environments. However, species sharing a habitat produce signals
Urban soil compaction reduces cicada diversity
TLDR
These findings identify soil compaction due to urbanization as a possible cause of cicada diversity loss, as it impedes the passage of nymphs to underground nests and may influence ecosystem functioning of soil-dwelling arthropods and their trophically associated animals.
A mismatch between signal transmission efficacy and mating success calls into question the function of complex signals
TLDR
These results point to a minor role of bimodal (vibratory and visual) courtship signalling in S. retrorsa, which is more likely to occur in environments with suboptimal vibratory signal transmission, irrespective of visual signal transmission.

Thermoregulation and activity patterns of two syntopic cicadas, Tibicen chiricahua and T. duryi (Homoptera: Cicadidae), in central New Mexico
TLDR
The degree of dependence of Tth on ambient temperature varied between activities within both species, with the least dependence exhibited during singing, which apparently can only function effectively over a relatively narrow range of temperature.
Acoustic communication in the Palaearctic red cicada, Tibicina haematodes: chorus organisation, calling-song structure, and signal recognition
TLDR
The organisation of the chorus formed by aggregating males is described, the physical characteristics of the calling song are analysed, and playback experiments of natural, modified, and allospecific signals are used to investigate the signal-recognition process.

TLDR
In a fragment of a Mexican rainforest, a cicada community at the end of the dry season consisting of nine species, seven of the nine species formed dense choruses at dawn and at dusk and each species showed preferences in the height of calling sites.

TLDR
There was no evidence, however, that the calls of these frogs have evolved to maximize habitat-specific transmission.

A Quantitative Analysis of the Dawn Chorus: Temporal Selection for Communicatory Optimization
TLDR
A mathematical model is designed to explore the relationships between sound transmission and microclimatic conditions present at different times of the day in different habitats and a hypothesis is advanced based on communication theory and sound transmission through a turbulent medium whereby information transfer may be enhanced by the use of higher frequencies.
Sound transmission and its significance for animal vocalization
TLDR
Two facts mitigating against Morton's sound “window” as an explanation for lower frequencies in songs of forest as opposed to open country birds are presence of similar “windows” in both habitats and restriction of windows to a zone close to the ground in most habitats.

TLDR
Animal communication systems have evolved so that individuals can make decisions based upon the behaviour, physiology or morphology of others, which should allow predictions about the kinds and forms of signals used by animals signalling under known conditions to be made.
