Anthropogenic noise imposes novel selection pressures, especially on species that communicate acoustically. Many animals – including insects, frogs, whales, and birds – produce sounds at higher frequencies in areas with low-frequency noise pollution. Although there is support for animals changing their vocalizations in real time in response to noise (i.e., immediate flexibility), other evolutionary mechanisms for animals that learn their vocalizations remain largely unexplored. We hypothesize that cultural selection for signal structures less masked by...
Models, YASARA macros, and R scripts to analyze the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that are found in the human genome (as of 08/2017) within the protein BST2/'Tetherin'/CD317.
