    About This Project

    Roads generate negative effects on wildlife, including noise pollution that masks bird vocal communication. However, most studies on this theme have been conducted away from the tropics.

    We use playback experiments in Costa Rica to test if noise also affects bird communication in the tropics. If this were the case as previously shown, we hypothesize that birds would modify their song structure in the context of noise playbacks to maximize signal emission.
