Response properties of the auditory nerve fibers of the Pacific treefrog, Hyla regilla, were shown to be comparable to other Hylids at a standard temperature of 20 degrees C. This species from a rather variable thermal habitat was compared to the neotropical aboreal species, Eleutherodactylus coqui, in a study of auditory responses under conditions of changing temperatures. We found that as temperature increased: the center frequencies (CFs) of tuning curves remained constant for neurons from… CONTINUE READING
