... of pulsatile sounds and a distinct postural display–extension of a hypertrophied lower jaw, a morphological trait not present in other Danionella species—during aggressive, but not courtship interactions. Females show no evidence of sound production or jaw extension in such contexts. Novel pairs of size...

... by higher amplitudes or rates of calling, but such acoustic compensation mechanisms may incur energetic costs if sound production is expensive. The costs of whistling in bottlenose dolphins ( Tursiops truncatus ) have been reported to be much higher (20% of resting metabolic rate, RMR) than theoretical...

From these two perspectives, we studied the time course of dolphin sound production during fish capture. Our observations...
