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


Henry D Legett, Viktor Baranov, Ximena E Bernal


In the tropics, precipitation patterns result in seasonal fluctuations in the abundance and distribution of plant and animal species. Tropical predators and parasites are therefore faced with seasonal changes in prey and host availability. This study inves...

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


Henry Legett, Rachel A Page, Ximena E Bernal


Conspicuous mating signals attract mates but also expose signallers to predators and parasites. Signal evolution, therefore, is driven by conflicting selective pressures from multiple receivers, both target and non-target. Synchronization of mating signals...

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


Henry Legett, Ikkyu Aihara, Ryan P. Madden, Ximena E Bernal


Acoustic noise from automobile traffic impedes communication between signaling animals. To overcome the acoustic interference imposed by anthropogenic noise, species across taxa adjust their signaling behavior to increase signal saliency. As most of the sp...

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


Henry D Legett, Ikkyu Aihara, Ximena E Bernal


Animals that aggregate in leks to attract mates often time the production of their mating signals against the signals of neighboring conspecifics. Such signal timing usually falls into general patterns within these aggregations, which can be categorized ba...

Dataset of the peak height insertion gain (PHIG) method for quantifying acoustic feedback in hearing aids


Joshua M Alexander, Randall Wagner, Stephanie Schmig, Steve Armstrong


Hearing aids are commonly fit with ear canals partially or fully open – a condition that increases the risk of acoustic feedback.  Feedback limits the audiometric fitting range of devices by limiting usable gain.  To guide clinical decision-making and devi...

The dual benefits of synchronized mating signals in a Japanese treefrog


Henry Legett, Ikkyu Aihara, Ximena E Bernal


In dense mating aggregations, such as leks and choruses, acoustic signals produced by competing male conspecifics often overlap in time. When signals overlap at a fine temporal scale, either completely or partially, the ability of females to discriminate b...

Audio files and raw data for Perceptually Robust English Sentence Test - Revised (PRESTO-R).


Andrea Plotkowski, Joshua M Alexander


Test material comes from the PRESTO (Perceptually Robust English Sentence Test Open-set; Gilbert et al. 2013), a high variability test containing multiple speakers with a variety of dialects.  PRESTO contains 20 lists, with 18 sentences in each (9 male and...

Sixty-six minimal pair /s/ and /ʃ/ words were selected, including proper nouns (e.g. Sam to contrast with sham). Forty-five of these pairs had /s/-/ʃ/ in the initial position, eighteen in the final position, and three in the medial position. Six female tal...
