The following are data files required to generate figures in Lee et. al. 2021. In this study, we investigate the role of lung inflation in frogs for hearing conspecific mating calls in mixed-species choruses. In the data files 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig1B_FigS1.xlsx', 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig1C.xlsx', and 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig1D.xlsx' each sheet contains data collected from separate subjects. Eardrum vibration amplitude (Fig. 1B and Fig. 1C) and amplitude difference (Fig. 1D) values are organized in a 2D-matrix where rows and columns are values at different sound frequencies (Hz) and sound incidence angles (degrees azimuth) respectively. The call spectra plotted in black in Fig. 1E are given in 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig1E.xlsx'. Each column represents the spectrum averaged across calls for a single male. Data shown in the polar plots Fig. 1F and Fig. 1G are give in data files 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig1F.xlsx' and 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig1G.xlsx' respectively. Columns contain amplitude difference values as a function of sound incidence angles (degrees azimuth) for each subject (rows). Lung vibration amplitudes as a function of lung state (inflated, deflated, and reinflated) are given as separate sheets in 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig2A.xlsx'. In each sheet, amplitude values as a function of frequency (rows) from different individuals are given in separate columns. Reconstructions of the tympanum's free-field vibration amplitude in the inflated v.s. deflated lung states are provided in 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig2B.xlsx'. Each column represents amplitude difference values resulting from varied transmission gain weights (1x-6x). The model output for the predicted effects of inflated lungs on the tympanum's free-field response is provided in 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig2C.xlsx'. Amplitude difference values are provided as a function of sound frequency (rows) and sound incidence angle (columns). Data for the call spectra plotted in Fig. 3 are given in 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig3 - Call Spectra.xlsx'. Each sheet contains call spectra from a different frog species. Amplitude values as a function of sound frequency (rows) for each individual (columns) are provided. Data for the polar plots in Fig. 3 are given in 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig3 - Polar Plots.xlsx'. Amplitude values for each individual (rows) in response to varying sound incidence angles (columns) are given. The gammatone filters presented in Fig. 4 are based on auditory nerve physiology data given in 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig4_filterbank_data.xlsx' and generated with the m-file 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig4_filterbank_code.m' in MATLAB. See comments in m-file for instructions to run code and for 'Lee_et_al_2021_Fig4_filterbank_data.xlsx' column headers. Data plotted in Fig. S2 (lung resonance as a function of body size) are given 'Lee_et_al_2021_FigS2.xlsx'. Transmission gain amplitude values plotted in Fig. S3 are given in 'Lee_et_al_2021_FigS3.xlsx'. Data provided in Table S1 are given in 'Lee_et_al_2021_Table S1.xlsx'.
