Abstract Damselfishes are well known for their aggressive, territorial behaviour during which the use of vocalization behaviour has been well documented. However, agonistic acoustic signalling has been understudied in particular when the vocalizations are interspecific. In this study, we characterize and compare the previously undescribed vocalization behaviour of longfin damselfish (Stegastes diencaeus), in an agonistic context, with the closely related and sympatric dusky damselfish… Expand

Acoustic behavior of the damselfish Dascyllus albisella: behavioral and geographic variation
TLDR
Underwater audio-video recordings of the behavior and associated sounds produced by the domino damselfish at Johnston Atoll and Hawaii, which are separated by 1000 km, are used to study behavioral and geographic variation in communication sounds. Expand
Interspecific aggression in two highly similar Stegastes damselfish
Interspecific aggression may be caused by competition for resources or result from species misidentification. Species may exhibit aggressive responses that are similar, or symmetrical, to each other,Expand
Sound production by a coral reef fish (Pomacentrus partitus) : Evidence for a vocal, territorial keep-out signal
The Chirp-sound, produced by males of the bicolor damselfish Pomacentrus partitus, plays an important role in influencing the behavior of conspecific females during the pre-spawning period. EvidenceExpand
Are conspecific and heterospecific opponents assessed similarly? A test in two species of territorial damselfish (Pomacentridae)
TLDR
While the species differences were surprised, both the dusky and the longfin were internally consistent in how they treated conspecific and heterospecific opponents. Expand
Sound Discrimination by the Bicolor Damselfish, Eupomacentrus Partitus
TLDR
It is demonstrated that male bicolors possess an excellent discriminative ability within the acoustic modality and that such discrimination is based on some factor of the structural patterning, in time, of the experimental sounds. Expand
SPAWNING SOUNDS OF THE DAMSELFISH, DASCYLLUS ALBISELLA (POMACENTRIDAE), AND RELATIONSHIP TO MALE SIZE
ABSTRACT Synchronous audio-video recordings were made of free-living Dascyllus albisella on coral reefs at Johnston Atoll, Central Pacifc Ocean. Males produced distinct and consistent sounds duringExpand
Attack intensity by two species of territorial damselfish (Pomacentridae) as estimates of competitive overlap with two species of wrasse (Labridae)
TLDR
Using intensity of interspecific territorial defense alone may not be an adequate measure of competitive overlap in two territorial Caribbean damselfish species. Expand
Sound production in four damselfish (Dascyllus) species: phyletic relationships?
TLDR
Large variations in sound length were found between Dascyllus species, whereas differences in interpulse duration were found to be variable between populations, suggesting that females would need to sample more than one sound and potentially use other cues to discriminate between species. Expand
Sound production and spectral hearing sensitivity in the Hawaiian sergeant damselfish, Abudefduf abdominalis
TLDR
Data provide the first evidence that Abudefduf uses true acoustic communication on a level similar to that of both more derived and more basal soniferous pomacentrids, consistent with the sensory drive model of signal evolution. Expand
The sounds of bicolor damselfish (Pomacentrus partitus) : predictors of body size and a spectral basis for individual recognition and assessment
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the ‘‘chirp,’’ a sound commonly produced by males of the bicolor damselfish possesses an anatomical constraint: the peak frequency within its power spectrum reflects a clear inverse relationship to body size. Expand
