Data from: Divergence in mating signals correlates with genetic distance and behavioural responses to playback

J. Roberto Sosa-López, Juan E. Martinez Gomez & Daniel J. Mennill
Animals use acoustic signals to defend resources against rivals and attract breeding partners. As with many biological traits, acoustic signals may reflect ancestry; closely related species often produce more similar signals than do distantly related species. Whether this similarity in acoustic signals is biologically relevant to animals is poorly understood. We conducted a playback experiment to measure the physical and vocal responses of male songbirds to the songs of both conspecific and allopatric-congeneric animals that...
