Dry Matter Intake and Beta-Hydroxybutyrate Response in a GTT in Phase Shifted Dairy Cows


Aridany Suarez Trujillo, 0000-0002-9343-5016, Conor John Mccabe, Jacquelyn P Boerman, Theresa M. Casey, 0000-0002-8835-3550


Circadian disruptions in dairy cattle did not affect BHB concentrations in response to an IVGTT at 14 days before expected calving and 7 days in milk. Additionally, there was no effect of disruptions on dry matter intake

Seasonal variation in abundance and diversity of eavesdropping frog‐biting midges (Diptera, Corethrellidae) in a neotropical rainforest


Henry D Legett, 0000-0001-9005-8641, Viktor Baranov, Ximena E Bernal, 0000-0001-6155-5980


We investigated the seasonal interaction among a specialized eavesdropping, frog-biting midges (Corethrella spp.), and their anuran hosts. Overall abundance of midges decreased in the dry season with little differences in abundance of species.

Synchronized mating signals in a communication network: the challenge of avoiding predators while attracting mates


Henry Legett, Rachel A Page, Ximena E Bernal, 0000-0001-6155-5980


We investigate how signal synchronization is shaped by natural and sexual selection in two frog species. Our results show that synchronization reduces exposure to eavesdroppers and relaxed selection by females is likely important.

Prey exploits the auditory illusions of eavesdropping predators


Claire T Hemingway, Henry D Legett, 0000-0001-9005-8641, Ximena E Bernal, 0000-0001-6155-5980


We show that male tree frogs reduce their attractiveness to eavesdropping enemies (bats and midges) by overlapping their calls at near-perfect synchrony with the calls of neighboring conspecifics taking advantage of an auditory illusion.

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.

Anuran predators overcome visual illusion: dazzle coloration does not protect moving prey


Geena M Darnell, Sara Zlotnik, 0000-0001-5750-8639, Ximena E Bernal, 0000-0001-6155-5980


Complex color patterns can decrease capture of moving prey (motion dazzle effect). We found no support for the motion dazzle effect as striped crickets did not fare better than solid colored ones crickets that moved more were more likely to be eaten.
