This bundle of 3 CDs contains two types of recordings: (1) Calls of a particular species, for which we usually selected recordings of single specimens, with highest recording quality available, and most typical calls. The terms 'call' or 'calls' generally refer to advertisement calls. If release calls or distress calls are described, it is explicitely mentioned. (2) Soundscapes were selected to give a general impression of the varieties of sounds in Madagascan rainforests. Many of them are mixed choruses of several species, sometimes the recorded species could not be reliably identified, and some soundscapes include vocalizations of other Madagascan animals. Temperature data refer to air temperature unless otherwise stated.
The booklet (44 pages) accompanying provides information on the authors, localities, dates and temperature conditions of the recordings present on the three CDs, and on the natural history and calling behaviour of the frog species recorded.
