Mosquitoes, certain Drosophila species, and honey bees use Johnston's organ in their antennae to detect the wing-beat sounds of conspecifics. Recent studies on these insects have provided novel insights into the intricacies of insect hearing and sound communication, with main discoveries including transduction and amplification mechanisms as known from vertebrate hearing, functional and molecular diversifications of mechanosensory cells, and complex mating duets that challenge the frequency… CONTINUE READING
