Abstract: Background The rutting vocal display of male impala Aepyceros melampus is unique for its complexity among ruminants. This study investigates bouts of rutting calls produced towards potential mates and rival males by free-ranging male impala in Namibia. In particular, a comparison of male rutting and alarm snorts is conducted, inspired by earlier findings of mate guarding by using alarm snorts in male topi Damaliscus lunatus. Results Rutting male im… Show more

“…This is a native Namibian habitat with approximately 60% bush cover and open areas around artificial watering places. In 2015, it accommodated about 800 free‐ranging impalas originating from about 100 individuals released in 1994 (Frey et al, 2020; Volodin et al, 2021).…”

“…A clearly defined rutting period exists only in regions of Africa with prominent seasonal changes of temperature, day length and rainfall, as, for example, in Zimbabwe (Murray, 1982;Warren, 1974), South Africa (Oliver, 2002;Oliver et al, 2006) and Namibia (Frey et al, 2020;Volodin et al, 2021). In such a temperate climate, rutting male impala produce their bouts of rutting calls in May-June, depending on the latitude (Dasmann & Mossman, 1962;Fairall, 1983;Frey et al, 2020;Mason, 1976;Oliver, 2002;Oliver et al, 2006;Volodin et al, 2021). During the rutting period, males keep territories rich in food and/or water resources of about 34 ha (Oliver, 2002;Oliver et al, 2006) that attract females, and defend them against rival males (Anderson, 1972a(Anderson, , 1972b(Anderson, , 1975Frey et al, 2020;Jarman, 1979;Leuthold, 1970;Murray, 1982;Oliver, 2002;Oliver et al, 2006;Volodin et al, 2021).…”
