(Am I losing my mind?) I could have sworn there was solid research indicating that phonotaxis evidence for preferences (during ex situ experiments) was "held up" by en situ experiments...(by this I mean lab experiments were replicated in wild populations).

Does anyone have, ideally, a peer reviewed article (honestly even a thesis will do at this point) showing that preferences among animals for certain other individuals (shown via phonotaxis) have some sort of real world, in-habitat related replication? Surely there is some reason/real world application as to why we do so many phonotaxis experiments in ecology. (Phototaxis is fine too by the way). What am I missing here? Anyway even something tangential could help me so please don't hesitate to reply to this. Thank you so much in advance.
