...Kaveri Rajaraman; Vamsy Godthi; Rudra Pratap; Rohini Balakrishnan ABSTRACT The communication strategy of most crickets and bushcrickets typically consists of males broadcasting loud acoustic calling songs, while females perform phonotaxis, moving towards the source of the call. Males...

...Ismene Fertschai; Jürgen Stradner; Heiner Römer SUMMARY Imperfect synchrony between male calls occurs in the acoustically interacting bushcricket Mecopoda elongata , and males establishing the temporal leadership attract more females in choice experiments. An asymmetrical representation of leader...
