ECHOLOCATION SYSTEM OF NOCTURNAL MOTHS
The monograph summarizes the research on the echolocation system
of nocturnal moths - the noctuids (Noctuidae, Lepidoptera). For the
first time the ability of moths to use the pulse echolocation was
experimentally established. The aspects of the probing sound
production, the perception of an echo and the spatial characteristics
of the locator are examined. Also the influence of bat predation
on the moth acoustic behavior is discussed.
The book is addressed to graduate students, undergraduates and researchers specializing in sensory physiology and ecology.
