We applied the information theory concepts to notes repertoire characteristics combined with temporal parameters of the Rufous-bellied thrush Turdus rufiventris song, using this particular case to test a new method of analysing quantitatively complex animal communication systems. Like most Turdus thrushes, Rufous-bellied thrushes are remarkable for their long, varied and melodious songs. For the analysis of the species repertoire, we used recordings of 44 individuals from 24 localities covering… CONTINUE READING
