... the development and scaling of body parts remains unclear. In bees, a reduction in body size and/or a reduction in body parts, such as the antennae, tongue and wings, and how they scale with body size (i.e. their allometry) could severely affect their fitness. To date, it remains unclear how temperature affects...

... signals that provide information about obstacles and predators. Here, we investigate how spontaneously walking crickets and crickets engaging in acoustically guided goal-directed navigation, i.e. phonotaxis, respond to mechanosensory stimuli detected by their long antennae. We monitored walking behaviour...

Our data indicate that running cockroaches employ strategies that set their sensorimotor systems in a mode of readiness to deal...

... antennal anatomy served as a sound-receiving structure. In the present study, the sound-induced vibrations of the antennal flagellum in male and female Aedes aegypti were compared, and the functional significance of the flagellar hairs for audition was examined. In both males and females, the antennae...

...J. M. Camhi; E. N. Johnson ABSTRACT Cockroaches ( Periplaneta americana ) use their antennae to detect a wall and to maintain a constant distance from it as they walk or run along it. The faster they run, the closer they position themselves to the wall. They also use their antennae to detect...

Immobilization of the scape–pedicel and pedicel–flagellum joints of female antennae had no effect on mounting probability, suggesting that mechanosensory input from chordotonal organs...
