... playback experiments, we investigated acoustic synchrony and the mechanisms underlying it in the katydid species Mecopoda ‘Two Part Caller’. This species has a complex call consisting of a long trill followed by two or more chirps. We found that individual males synchronized trills and, to a lesser extent...

... terrestrial invertebrates is anthropogenic noise. Acoustic noise from roadways, railways, wind turbines and other anthropogenic sources can have a negative impact on insect populations ( Raboin and Elias, 2019 ). Monarch larvae have been shown to respond to road noise and aircraft ( Davis et al., 2018...

... experimental evidence for the mechanics of elytro-tergal stridulation, and provide insight into how an insect can incorporate variability into its acoustic repertoire using a spring-loaded mechanism. Many beetles use elytro-tergal stridulation to communicate ( Wessel, 2006 ) but the mechanisms underlying...

...Conrado A. Rosi-Denadai; Melanie L. Scallion; Craig G. Merrett; Jayne E. Yack ABSTRACT Insects have evolved a great diversity of sound-producing mechanisms largely attributable to their hardened exoskeleton, which can be rubbed, vibrated or tapped against different substrates to produce acoustic...

...Eric Parmentier; Maud Petrinisec; Paulo J. Fonseca; Maria Clara P. Amorim ABSTRACT Fish acoustic signals play a major role during agonistic and reproductive interactions. Among the sound-generating fish, Gobiidae, a large fish family with 1866 valid species, is one of the most studied groups of...

... all the variables measured in sound analysis. Juvenile and adult sounds were compared with Wilcoxon signed-rank tests. The correlation between body size and acoustic features was examined with a Spearman correlation matrix associated with a P -value (Holm–Bonferroni adjusted method) matrix. The...

...Eric Parmentier; Kenneth Mann; David Mann SUMMARY The air-filled swimbladder acts as an acoustic amplifier for some fish by converting sound pressure into particle motion, which is transmitted to the inner ear. Here, we describe in detail the specialized connection between the swimbladder and ear...

We exposed the ears of five noctuoid moth species to the pre-recorded echolocation calls of an attacking bat ( Eptesicus fuscus ) to observe the acoustic encoding of the receptors at this critical time in their defensive behaviour. The B cell is a non-tympanal receptor common to all moths that has...
