Data from: Signal diversification in Oecanthus tree crickets is shaped by energetic, morphometric, and acoustic trade-offs

Laurel B. Symes, Matthew P. Ayres, Colleen P. Cowdery & Robin A. Costello
Physiology, physics, and ecological interactions can generate trade-offs within species, but may also shape divergence among species. We tested whether signal divergence in Oecanthus tree crickets is shaped by acoustic, energetic, and behavioral trade-offs. We found that species with faster pulse rates, produced by opening and closing wings up to twice as many times per second, did not have higher metabolic costs of calling. The relatively constant energetic cost across species is explained by trade-offs...
