Physical mechanisms involved in directional hearing are investigated in two species of short-horned grasshoppers that differ in body length by a factor of 3­4. The directional cues (the effects of the direction of sound incidence on the amplitude and phase angle of the sounds at the ears) are more pronounced in the larger animal, but the scaling is not(More)
An array of eight microphones, all at a distance of 15 cm, was used to make simultaneous recordings of the sounds emitted by courting male acridid grasshoppers of the species Omocestus viridulus. In this species, the movement pattern for sound production differs in the two hindlegs, and in most cases the leg facing the female moves with the larger(More)
