Jaimie Hopkins conducted groundbreaking studies on the effect of the vocalisations of invasive species on native species. She found that native birds and frogs respond to invasive species' calls, and similar noises, by altering the calling behaviour. Changes in calling behaviour may reduce native fitness, compounding invasive species' impacts.
