Coyote vocalizations a lexicon and comparisons with other canids



Coyote vocalizations a lexicon and comparisons with other canids



Animal Behaviour 26(3): 712-722



Vocalizations of free-ranging and captive coyotes (Canis latrans) were recorded from Jan. 1972 through Aug. 1975. A lexicon of 11 vocalizations was constructed based on their sounds as perceived by the [human] observer, behavioral context, and physical characteristics as determined through sound spectrographic analysis. The suspected functions and relative intensities of communication of the vocalizations are described. Comparisons are made with the vocalizations of other canids.
