Signal Perception in Frogs and Bats and the Evolution of Mating Signals
Receiver perception limits the evolution of increasingly elaborate calls in túngara frogs. Psychophysics measures the relationship between a stimulus’s physical magnitude and its perceived magnitude.Expand

Cues for Eavesdroppers: Do Frog Calls Indicate Prey Density and Quality?
Predators and parasites that eavesdrop on the mating signals of their prey often preferentially select individuals within a prey/host species that produce specific cues. Mechanisms driving suchExpand

Social Transmission of Novel Foraging Behavior in Bats: Frog Calls and Their Referents
The fringe-lipped bat, Trachops cirrhosus, uses prey-emitted acoustic cues (frog calls) to assess prey palatability . Previous experiments show that wild T. cirrhosus brought into the laboratory areExpand

No fever and leucocytosis in response to a lipopolysaccharide challenge in an insectivorous bat
Bat immune systems may allow them to respond to zoonotic agents more efficiently than other mammals. As the first line of defence, the taxonomically conserved acute phase immune reaction ofExpand

The effect of signal complexity on localization performance in bats that localize frog calls
The fringe-lipped bat, Trachops cirrhosus, uses frog mating calls to detect and locate its prey. The tungara frog, Physalaemus pustulosus, a preferred prey species of this bat, produces two types ofExpand

When to approach novel prey cues? Social learning strategies in frog-eating bats
Animals can use different sources of information when making decisions. Foraging animals often have access to both self-acquired and socially acquired information about prey. The fringe-lipped bat,Expand

Frugivorous bats evaluate the quality of social information when choosing novel foods
The ability to discriminate information quality from multiple social partners may be essential to animals that use social cues in deciding when, where, and what to eat. This may be particularlyExpand

Risks of multimodal signaling: bat predators attend to dynamic motion in frog sexual displays
Many sexual displays contain multiple components that are received through a variety of sensory modalities. Primary and secondary signal components can interact to induce novel receiver responses andExpand

Female preference for large males in sailfin mollies, Poecilia latipinna: the importance of predation pressure and reproductive status
We examined the effect of predation risk on female association patterns in the live-bearing sailfin molly (Poecilia latipinna). We tested two classes of females, with and without the risk ofExpand

Investigating the catch returns and growth rate of wels catfish, Silurus glanis, using mark–recapture
In January 2004, 46 wels catfish, Silurus glanis L., between 51 and 135 cm total length were tagged and released into a 0.4 ha recreational, catch and release, lake fishery in the UK, and theirExpand
