A micro-geography of fear: learning to eavesdrop on alarm calls of neighbouring heterospecifics
Many vertebrates eavesdrop on alarmcalls of other species, which is a remarkable ability, given geographical variation in community composition and call diversity within and among species.We used micro-geographical variation in community composition to test whether individuals recognize heterospecific alarm calls by: (i) responding to acoustic features shared among alarm calls; (ii) having innate responses to particular heterospecific calls; or (iii) learning specific alarmcalls.We found that...[Show more]
