Soundscape data was collected in Panama in 2018 and 2019 at two sites: Santa Cruz and Ocelot ponds. Frog choruses were recorded using Song Meter SM3s. Recordings were largely processed by inputting files into R and running QUT Ecoacoustics Analysis Programs (Towsey M, Truskinger A, Cottman-Fields M, Roe P. 2018. Ecoacoustics Audio Analysis Software v18.03.0.41 (Version v18.03.0.41). Zenodo. http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1188744).
Behavioral data was collected by running phonotaxis experiments in Panama in 2019. Data were recorded during trials, and videos of trials were saved for review.
Due to the nature of sound and video files taking up a lot of storage space, these have not been included. However, they are available upon request from the first author.
