Insect pursuit, prey capture and echolocation in pipestirelle bats (Microchiroptera)
Abstract The foraging and echolocation behaviour of three European pipistrelles ( Pipistrellus pipistrellus, P. nithusii and P. kuhlii ) was studied under natural conitions. The pipistrelles wereExpand

The roles of echolocation and olfaction in two Neotropical fruit-eating bats, Carollia perspicillata and C. castanea, feeding on Piper
Abstract We studied the echolocation and foraging behavior of two Neotropical frugivorous leaf-nosed bats (Carollia perspicillata, C. castanea: Phyllostomidae) in a flight cage. To test which cuesExpand
