Among the broad diversity of songbird vocalisations, song can serve a wide range of different functions depending on the species and context. In many species, aggressive motivation has often been linked with the use of fast repeated series of elements typically referred to as trills. However, only a few studies explored the role of this specific co...
The songs of migratory passerine birds have a key role in mate attraction and territory defence during the breeding season. Many species also sing on their wintering grounds, but the function of this behaviour remains unclear. One possible explanation, proposed by the song improvement hypothesis, is that the birds take advantage of this period to d...
Knowledge of the mechanisms facilitating the coexistence of closely related competing species is crucial for understanding biodiversity patterns. The concept of convergent agonistic character displacement (ACD) suggests that interspecific interference competition may lead to convergence in territorial signals between species, which helps to establi...
Nightingale species are considered among the most skilful song performers of European songbirds, by both the diversity of their song and their learning abilities. The common nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos) and thrush nightingale (Luscinia luscinia) are two closely related species sharing a recent sympatric zone across central Europe. Interestin...
