A practical approach to measuring the acoustic diversity by community ecology methods

Sándor Zsebők, Dénes Schmera, Miklós Laczi, Gergely Nagy, Éva Vaskuti, János Török & László Garamszegi
The study of the diversity of animal signals on within- and among-species levels is the key to uncover mechanisms that shape the evolution of communication systems. However, the methods used to quantify acoustic diversity (like repertoire size) lack to grasp several aspects of acoustic diversity. Here, we propose a new framework for the study of animal communication, in which we decompose the acoustic diversity with the methodological toolbox from community ecology. We explore how different...
