... have investigated the role of flow sensing in benthic feeding teleosts. In this study, we used artificial flows emerging from a sandy substrate to assess the contribution of flow sensing to prey detection in the peacock cichlid, Aulonocara stuartgranti , which feeds on benthic invertebrates in Lake...

... filter. Performances of prey detection based on luminance contrast improved with age. Polarization contrast can help cuttlefish detect transparent prey. Our results suggest that polarization is not a simple modulation of luminance information, but rather that it is processed as a distinct channel...

... the Lake Malawi peacock cichlids ( Aulonocara ), and has been attributed to its role in prey detection. The ability to study Aulonocara in the laboratory provides an opportunity to test the hypothesis that their reported ability to feed on invertebrate prey living in sandy substrates in their natural...

... relationship between prey detection ability and frequency-dominating echolocation calls likely because many selective forces act on frequency. Prey detection is unlikely to influence the use of particular bandwidth or sweep rate. However, longer pulses and higher duty cycle improve the bats' ability to detect...

In this study, we analysed amplitude and frequency parameters from insects walking on various natural substrates, in both Germany ( Carabus beetles) and Madagascar (various beetles and cockroaches...
