Published: 11 November 2022
...Tanya Bojesen Lauridsen; Jakob Christensen-Dalsgaard ABSTRACT In most anuran amphibians, acoustic communication is of prime importance for mate localization and selection. The tympanic middle ear increases auditory sensitivity and directionality and is therefore expected to be favoured by natural...
