- Spring peepers Pseudacris crucifer modify their call structure in response to noise. HANNA, Dalal E. L.; WILSON, David R.; BLOUIN-DEMERS, Gabriel; MENNILL, Daniel J. // Current Zoology;Aug2014, Vol. 60 Issue 4, p438
Acoustic interference can impede effective communication that is important for survival and reproduction of animals. In response to acoustic interference, some animals can improve signalling efficacy by altering the structure of their signals. In this study, we played artificial noise to 46 male...
- Ecology of an Aquatic Snake (Thamnophis marcianus) in a Desert Environment: Implications of Early Timing of Birth and Geographic Variation in Reproduction. Seigel, Richard A.; Ford, Neil B.; Mahrt, Laura A. // American Midland Naturalist;Apr2000, Vol. 143 Issue 2, p453
ABSTRACT.--We studied the ecology of the checkered garter snake, Thamnophis marcianus, in a desert grassland in southeastern Arizona. The adult sex ratio was 0.67 M: F and varied significantly among seasons. As with other species of Thamnophis, adult females were significantly larger than males...

- Familiarity with a female does not affect a male's courtship intensity in garter snakes Thamnophis sirtalis parietalis. SHINE, Richard; WEBB, Jonathan K.; LANE, Amanda; MASON, Robert T. // Current Zoology;
In many animal species, males direct more intense courtship towards females they have not previously encountered, than towards females with which they have previously mated. To test the factors responsible for this "Coolidge Effect", we need studies on a wide range of taxa - including those with...
