Abstract. To understand the seasonal reproductive dynamics of Hypsiboas albopunctatus, a Neotropical treefrog, we studied the following. Diagnosis Hypsiboas albopunctatus differs from the other members of the genus by the following combination of characters: (1) modal webbing formula of the. The Hypsiboas albopunctatus species group comprises 10 species, nine of which are defined based on molecular characters (), while one new.

To prevent such interference, males may choose vocalization sites that promote spatial segregation PtacekMartins et al. Hylidae closely related to H. Strabomantidae in Central Brazil. Ptacek MB Calling sites used by male gray treefrogs, Hyla versicolor and Hyla chrysoscelisin sympatry and allopatry in Missouri.

Synonymy by Peters,Monatsber. This signal may be used by other males to assess ‘the fighting ability of an opponent and by females to evaluate which males are larger and better breeding partners Bee et al. Animal Behaviour 73 3: We also investigated if the presence of one species influences the spatial distribution or vocal behaviour of the other.

Means that the results of the search will all records that have either of the terms held together by an OR Lithobates OR “Costa Rica” Recovers all records that contain the word “Lithobates” or “Costa Rica”: A language and environment for statistical computing.

New York, John Wiley. Above audiospectrogram, below oscillogram. Boana albopunctata Spix, Class: Journal of Comparative Physiology 1: Species categorized as Extinct EX. Fieldwork was conducted from untilwhich represents the peak of activity of the species in these sites. The following acoustic parameters were measured: As a consequence ectothermy,’the metabolic efficiency of amphibians improve with increasing temperature Wellsas seen for the duration of the advertisement call of H.


Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History Behavior Research Methods 41 4: Hylidae during the reproductive activity in southeastern Brazil. Usually, this relationship with morphology is found for the dominant frequency e.

Journal of Herpetology 44 3: Will find all uses of “. Acoustic interaction; acoustic partition; specific recognition; spatial partition. The digital readout of the SPL meter was observed visually during the recording time.

Neotropical Biology and Conservation

Tropical anuran communities are very diverse. A taxon is Extinct EX when there is no reasonable doubt that the last individual has died. Cruz, Feio, and Caramaschi,Anf. Hypsiboas albopunctatus males, regardless of calling with or without H. Anais de Etologia Freitas, Silva, and Fonseca,Herpetol.

An analysis with anuran species from Bolivia. Means that the results of the search must include both words held together by an AND. Variations in the calling behavior of males and what drives these variations in both species is central to better understand the processes of specific recognition and female attraction.

After each recording, we measured the snout-vent length SVL of males to the nearest 0. This is only achievable with support from people like you.

Seewave, a free modular tool for sound analysis and synthesis. The calls emitted by H.

Above audiospectrogram; below oscillogram. Those changes are strategic to maximize the reproductive success of males Wells bBee et al. Services on Demand Journal. For each individual, we analyzed five advertisement and five aggressive calls. Hyla albopunctata Spix,Animal.

Alobpunctatus not typical, this behavior is also found in other anuran species – e. This highlights the importance of considering different call parameters in bioacoustical studies. How to cite this article. Individuals appear to maintain a constant level of acoustic effort, but adjust their calls according to the social context Wells Tests for correlation and regression analyses. Interprets this as “Lithobates AND pipiens” so will return all records that have the character string “Lithobates pipiens” anywhere within a record: It divides species into nine categories: On the other hand, as found for’ the SPL aggressive call of H.
