1. The frequency preferences of gravid females ofHyla cinerea for the low-frequency peak of bimodal synthetic mating calls shifted by about 400 Hz when the temperature of the animals was changed by about 7 °C. Changes in preference involving the high-frequency peak were much less dramatic (Table 1). 2. The low-frequency peaks of the mating calls of four individual males ofH. cinerea changed only slightly (≦70 Hz) when they were recorded at high and low temperatures (Table 2, Fig. 1).
