Anthropogenic noise can create an acoustic environment detrimental for animals that communicate using acoustic signals. Currently, most studies of noise and wildlife come from traffic noise in cities. Less is known about the effects of noise created by industry in natural areas. Songbirds far from cities, but influenced by industry, could be affect...

Geographic variation in song characteristics within songbird species has the potential to reveal some of the complex interactions between ecology and behavior. The Connecticut Warbler (Oporornis agilis) is an uncommon and little studied Neotropical migratory wood warbler that breeds across the southern boreal forest in North America. The song of th...

Insectivorous birds reach their highest diversity in the tropics and represent a striking variety of morphological and behavioral specializations for foraging, yet explanations for these patterns are inadequate because of both our limited understanding of the drivers of ecological diversification within and among clades and of coexistence mechanism...

Research Highlights: While forest structure recovery in successional tropical forests is well studied, the recovery of fauna and changes in species composition and assemblage along forests succession is not well understood in many areas of the Neotropics like tropical dry forests (TDFs). Background and Objectives: To compare bird species richness a...

Songbirds are one of the most studied groups for being sensitive to human-caused noise since they rely on acoustic cues to maintain social interactions. For example, acoustic communication is fundamental to defend territories and female attraction. The common responses to noise are the avoidance of the noise source or the change of the songs to inc...
Article
Full-text available
Females often invest more in parental care than males, but in social monogamous systems, males invest as much as females in caring for their offspring, and male contribution is believed essential for reproductive success in these systems. Here we describe the number of visits, the feeding rate to their nestlings, and the time on the nest invested b...
Article
Full-text available
Songbirds have been traditionally classified into close-ended or open-ended learning species according to the length of the sensitive period during which birds are able to memorize new vocalizations. Closed-ended learners are generally not capable of changing their song after the first year of life, while open-ended learners show song plasticity as...

Full-text available
Some understory insectivorous birds manage to persist in tropical forest fragments despite significant habitat loss and forest fragmentation. Their persistence has been related to arthropod biomass. In addition, forest structure has been used as a proxy to estimate prey availability for understory birds and for calculating prey abundance. We used a...

Resumen El cuyeo (Nyctidromus albicollis) es un ave de hábitos crepusculares y nocturnos que se alimenta principalmente de coleópteros y lepidópteros. Su visión está especialmente adaptada a las condiciones de luz crepuscular y nocturna gracias a la distribución y densidad de conos y bastones luz lunar y cuando no estaban dedicando tiempo al canto....

Una de las principales causas de pérdida de biodiversidad es la expansión de la frontera agrícola, así como el uso de químicos. La agricultura orgánica se propone como una alternativa de producción asociada a la conservación de biodiversidad, en este sentido evaluamos la riqueza, abundancia y composición de tres grupos taxonómicos (mariposas diurna...

Song repertoire size and extent of song sharing provide information about social interactions that occur in songbird species. We recorded the songs of eight male Clay-colored Thrushes (Turdus grayi) in San Jose, Costa Rica, during the 2008 breeding season. We classified 695 songs and 5,032 syllables using visual inspection of spectrograms and spect...

The advance of urbanization in the Central Valley of Costa Rica is having negative impacts on land use and stresses the environment with a high demand of natural resources, particularly water resources. One example is the Barva Water Table, one of the main water suppliers of semi-urban areas of the Greater Metropolitan Area of Costa Rica, which lea...

The neotropical terrestrial insectivore Henicorhina leucosticta (Troglodytidae) maintains long-term territories through vocalizations and forages among leaf litter trapped in the understorey vegetation and ground litter. The relationship between forest structure and H. leucosticta territory size was studied in La Selva Biological Station, Costa Ric...
