Abstract

Males lowered their call rates and avoided acoustic overlap with all stimuli centered at 1.4kHz; only a high frequency (3.8kHz) stimulus was ineffective. Results are discussed in relation to species recognition in bufonids, and acoustic competition between male anurans in general. -from Authors
