    Developmental Ecology: Platform for Designing a Communication System.Meredith West, Andrew King & Gregory Kohn - 2011 - Interaction Studies 12 (2):351-371.
    In this article we provide a case history of the development of a communicative system in songbirds. In particular, we explore how brown-headed cowbirds, male and female, cooperate in the development and use of species-typical song. The goal is to show how social interactions between and within sexes create a platform for the production and perception of song. We consider six perspectives. First, we discuss the nature of the acoustic signal. Second, we look at the process of song learning. Third, (...)

  2. Beyond “Consistent with” Adaptation: Is There a Robust Test for Music Adaptation?Parker Tichko, Kevin A. Bird & Gregory Kohn - 2021 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 44.
    In their article, Mehr et al. conclude that the design features of music are consistent with adaptations for credible signaling. Although appealing to design may seem like a plausible basis for identifying adaptations, probing adaptive theories of music must be done at the genomic level and will require a functional understanding of the genomic, phenotypic, and fitness properties of music.
