According to a group of researchers from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the University of Texas Marine Science Institute, spying on fish love calls could protect them from hungry fishermen.
Not all birds are monogamous, and when it comes to Australian red-backed fairy-wrens both sexes tend to be very promiscuous. Surprisingly, Cornell ornithologists recently discovered males can keep their mates faithful by singing duets.
A recent study suggests the plight of the commen gray treefrog may help scientists measure the impact of climate change and better assess the health of a given ecosystem.
Male Brazilian torrent frogs perform interesting dance routines using their toes, feet, hands, legs, arms, vocal sacs, head, and body to attract a mate. Researchers say these diverse visual and audio displays are unlike any others they have observed in frogs.
Male crickets emit a high-frequency chirp to startle potential female mates into revealing their location. This, researchers say, likely evolved from males impersonating predatory bats.
Scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution have made the first-ever field observations of Omura's whales, which occured off the coast of Madagascar. This study sheds light on the rare species' behavior and habitat preferences.
Howler monkeys are fairly small animals, but can roar as powerfully as tigers. This ability comes at a evolutionary trade-off, though: howler monkeys with louder calls often have smaller reproductive organs, a recent study revealed.
Two new frog species have been discovered Misool Island in the Indonesian part of New Guinea, an area of vast biodiversity.
Researchers have long understood that male mice sing, or use vocalizations, to attract their mates. However, a recent study using specialized microphones found that the female mice sing back – but only if they're interested.
