Although a Science reader probably couldn't pick the fittest mate based on suitors' serenades, female gray tree frogs sure can, according to a report this week by Welch et al. (see p. 1928 and News story on p. 1837). Some male gray tree frogs have long calls; others have very short ones. You can also hear recordings of these calls and guess which crooner is most desirable.
