... of their effectiveness as a defence against echolocating bats. Neuroptera Insect hearing Bioacoustics Bat echolocation Desert The ability to hear airborne sound has evolved independently at least 18–20 times (see Yager, 1999 ; Yack, 2004 ; Strauß and Lakes-Harlan, 2014 ) across seven insect orders...

... composition of calls. We examined the effects of broadband-filtered noise on the spectro-temporal composition of horseshoe bat echolocation calls, which consist of a constant-frequency component and initial and terminal frequency-modulated components. We found that the frequency-modulated components became...

... broadcasts are brief, ultrasonic frequency-modulated (FM) chirps consisting of several harmonic frequency sweeps that collectively cover frequencies from about 20 to 100 kHz. The operating range of the big brown bat's echolocation system is limited, by spherical spreading and atmospheric attenuation...

Here, we used a habituation/generalization paradigm to demonstrate that C. tenera...
