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.

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.

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.
