Microchiropteran bats use an auditory sonar system for orientation and prey capture. Many bats use highly structured constant-frequency (CF) and frequency-modulated (FM) sonar orientation signals. Mechanisms for sound pattern recognition are important for the perception of these and other types of auditory signals. The processing and recognition of FM sound(More)
We examined the relationship between ambient temperature (Ta), body temperature (Tb), oxygen consumption (VO2), carbon dioxide production (VCO2), evaporative water loss (mH2O), respiratory frequency (f), tidal volume (VT), minute volume (VI), and oxygen extraction (EO2) in the Neotropical bat Noctilio albiventris (mean mass 40 g). The factorial aerobic(More)

In a two-alternative, forced-choice task lesser bulldog bats were trained to distinguish between a pure tone pulse and a pulse composed of a series of brief tonal steps oscillating between two different frequencies. The tone-step pulse gradually approximates the pure tone pulse as the frequency difference between the steps becomes progressively smaller.(More)
