Traffic noise differentially impacts call types in a Japanese treefrog (Buergeria japonica)


Henry Legett, Ikkyu Aihara Ryan P. Madden, Ximena E Bernal, 0000-0001-6155-5980


We investigated how the different call types of a Japanese stream breeding treefrog are affected by automobile traffic noise. This noise affected signal types in different ways suggesting some social functions will be disrupted more than others.

Signal synchrony and alternation among neighbor males in a Japanese Stream Breeding Treefrog, Buergeria japonica


Henry D Legett, 0000-0001-9005-8641, Ikkyu Aihara Ximena E Bernal, 0000-0001-6155-5980


We examined call timing strategies of the Ryukyu Kajika frog showing variation in temporal signaling strategies within a species with a call type that is synchronized with neighbors and another one that is produced alternating.

The dual benefits of synchronized mating signals in a Japanese treefrog


Henry Legett, Ikkyu Aihara Ximena E Bernal, 0000-0001-6155-5980


We investigated two non-mutually exclusive hypotheses: 1) beacon effect and 2) eavesdropper avoidance. We found that synchronized signalling both increasing attraction of females to the chorus and reducing eavesdropper attacks.
