ABSTRACT: Geographic variation in mating signals of birds is of interest to evolutionary biologists because the consequences of spatial divergence may lead to behavioral discrimination, assortative mating, and speciation. Spatial divergence may be influenced by environmental variables that affect sound transmission. To this end, we studied the geographic relationships between the song characteristics of the Mourning Warbler and environmental characteristics measured with satellite data. Specifically we investigated relationships between bird song characteristics, measured across Canada and across decades, to environmental indicators derived from Landsat data. We will present the processes we employed with ARCGIS Pro for this study.
