Call Patterns and Basilar Papilla Tuning in Cricket Frogs. I. Differences among Populations and between Sexes

Male cricket frogs (Acris crepitans) produce a broad-band, high frequency advertisement call with a single spectral peak (the dominant frequency). We measured the dominant frequencies of male calls from six populations in central Texas and one from Indiana and compared them to the tuning of basilar papilla afferents in males and females. Averaging over all […]
