Signature versus Perceptual Adaptations for Individual Vocal Recognition in Swallows

Abstract

Colonial living generally is associated with strong selection pressure for individual recognition (FALLS, 1982; JOUVENTIN, 1982; COLGAN, 1983; BEECHER, in press). For example, in most colonial species parents must find their offspring in large groups of like-aged young.
