No phenotypic signature of acoustic competition in songs of a tropical cricket assemblage
TLDR
It is argued that selection pressures on sensory/neuronal mechanisms seem to more strongly drive reliable communication in multispecies assemblages that communicate acoustically. Expand
Range-wide spatial mapping reveals convergent character displacement of bird song
TLDR
The results suggest that agonistic character displacement driven by interspecific competition can generate spatial patterns opposite to those predicted by classic character displacement theory, and highlight the potential role of social selection in shaping geographical variation in signal phenotypes of ecological competitors.

Geographic variation in advertisement calls of a Microhylid frog – testing the role of drift and ecology
TLDR
It is concluded that genetic drift, rather than ecological processes, is the more likely driver for the geographic variation in the advertisement calls of M. fissipes. Expand
REPRODUCTIVE CHARACTER DISPLACEMENT AND SIGNAL ONTOGENY IN A SYMPATRIC ASSEMBLAGE OF ELECTRIC FISH
TLDR
It is argued that RCD arose from the costs of heterospecific mismating, but interacted with sexual selection—favoring the evolution of conspicuous male signals that not only serve for mate‐choice, but which simultaneously facilitate species recognition. Expand
Acoustic niche partitioning in two tropical wet forest bird communities
TLDR
It is found that there is competition for acoustic space in signaling communities, and this has resulted in temporal and spectral partitioning of the soundscape in two montane tropical wet forest bird communities that vary in bird species richness. Expand
Multi-modal signal evolution in birds: re-examining a standard proxy for sexual selection
TLDR
Evidence is found for a strong negative relationship between the degree of plumage dichromatism and divergence in song traits, which remains significant even when accounting for other key factors, including habitat type, ecological divergence and interspecific interactions. Expand
Evolutionary divergence in sexual signals: Insights from within and among barn swallow populations
TLDR
It is found that sexual selection explains acoustic differences between recently diverged populations of the best-studied taxa and the acoustic window conceptual framework for understanding the contributions of selection, genetic drift, and evolutionary constraint to signal divergence is developed. Expand
Sympatric wren-warblers partition acoustic signal space and song perch height
TLDR
This work finds that the breeding songs of wren-warblers are divergent from each other in multivariate parameter space, with only minimal interspecific overlap, and proposes that divergent song perch heights may be driven by competition for higher singing perches or other ecological factors rather than signal propagation. Expand
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.

NULL-MODEL TESTS FOR COMPETITIVE DISPLACEMENT: THE FALLACY OF NOT FOCUSING ON THE WHOLE COMMUNITY'
TLDR
Several community-level parameters used to characterize community structure are shown to have greater power in discerning competitive displacement, and may mistake a clumped community for one with displacement. Expand
Character Displacement in Frogs
TLDR
Sympatric species pairs of anurans show greater differentiation in call than do allopatric pairs in the same group and effective call differences can evolve without sympatry, and there are sympatric situations in which no reinforcement is evident. Expand
THE EVOLUTION OF VOCALIZATION IN FROGS AND TOADS
TLDR
Parsimony analysis supports the idea that auditory biases preceded the evolutionary appearance of call elements that enhance the attractiveness of advertisement calls in one species group of neotropical frogs. Expand
Sexual Selection, Social Competition, and Speciation
TLDR
Patterns of variation in socially selected characters demonstrate the wisdom of Darwin's distinction between natural and sexual selection, and the applicability of sexual selection theory to social competition in general. Expand
Call differences and calling site segregation in anuran species from central Amazonian floating meadows
TLDR
The acoustic behaviour of 15 sympatric and synchronically breeding species of frogs in an area of floating meadows near Manaus (Brazil) was studied for a period of 8 months to study the mating calls of these species. Expand
Speciation in Chorus Frogs. I. Reproductive Character Displacement in the Pseudacris Nigrita Complex
TLDR
Analysis of mating calls of two cognate species of Pseudacris reveals divergence in two components, pulse rate and pulse number, which in at least one species seems best interpreted as reproductive character displacement. Expand
NULL MODELS IN ECOLOGY
TLDR
Process can be used to predict patterns, and pattern recognition can lead in turn to predictions about the consequences of experimentally manipulating natural communities. Expand
Isolating Mechanisms and Interspecies Interactions in Anuran Amphibians

  • 1964
TLDR
Examination of various allopatric and sympatric species pairs in the anurans indicates that, as known at present, there is no predictable sequence in which the various kinds of isolating mechanisms evolve, however, sympatrics species always differ in mating call, and some allop atric populations have been shown to differ enough for the females to discriminate between the calls of their own and foreign males.

TLDR
A series of null models to test for patterns in wetland plant composition at the level of species, functional guilds, and traits found significant checkerboard and nestedness patterns, and morphological assembly rules that constrain wetlands plant community composition are found. Expand
