Increased temperature disrupts chemical communication in some species but not others: The importance of local adaptation and distribution

Iglesias-Carrasco, Maider; Head, Megan; Martin, Jose; Cabido, Carlos


Environmental conditions experienced by a species during its evolutionary history may shape the signals it uses for communication. Consequently, rapid environmental changes may lead to less effective signals, which interfere with communication between individuals, altering life history traits such as predator detection and mate searching. Increased temperature can reduce the efficacy of scent marks released by male lizards, but the extent to which this negative effect is related to specific...[Show more]
