Signal design and perception in Hypocnemis antbirds: evidence for convergent evolution via social selection

Abstract:

Natural selection is known to produce convergent phenotypes through mimicry or ecological adaptation. It has also been proposed that social selection - i.e., selection exerted by social competition - may drive convergent evolution in signals mediating interspecific communication, yet this idea remains controversial. Here, we use color spectrophotometry, acoustic analyses, and playback experiments to assess the hypothesis of adaptive signal convergence in two competing nonsister taxa, Hypo...
