Previous studies have shown that the vocal sac of anurans radiates a large proportion of the acoustic output and that when the mouth is open, the output becomes detuned and weakened [30, 31].
At pressures close to the high and low limits of phonation of the larynx, nonlinearities were observed in the acoustic output of the larynx with the mouth of the frog open.
The contrasting comparatively low intensity of the acoustic output of M.
speciosus (Coelho 1998)], smaller stridulatory organs are associated with the generation of higher frequency and lower intensity acoustic outputs (Bennet-Clark 1998).
The result is more bang (acoustic output) for fewer bucks (low effort and reduced risk of tissue damage).
