Fliegende Rhinolophus [errum-equinum (R17) und Rhinolophus euryale (RE) senken die Frequenz des konstantfrequenten (of) Lautteils der Ortungslaute soweit, dab die entsprechend der Fluggeschwindigkeit entstehenden Doppler-Effekte kompensiert werden und damit die Echofrequenz etwa in H6he der vor dem Flug ausgesendeten Ruhefrequenz gehaiten wird [t]. Es gelang zu zeigen [2, 3], dab bet RF die Schwelle ffir im Colliculus inferior abgeleitete ,,evoked potentials" bet etwa 83 kHz, also im Bereich… Expand

Echolocation in the bat, Rhinolophus capensis: the influence of clutter, conspecifics and prey on call design and intensity
This investigation of echolocation call design in the highduty cycle bat, Rhinolophus capensis, as bats flew with either a conspecific or heterospecific in a large outdoor flight-room found no differences in duty cycle or peak frequency of the calls of R. capensis across conditions. Expand
Peripheral auditory tuning for fine frequency analysis by the CF-FM bat,Rhinolophus ferrumequinum
Peripheral auditory neurons with the best frequency between 77 and 87 kHz showed not only on- Responses, but also off-responses to tonal stimuli, probably due to a mechanical transient occurring in the cochlea at the cessation of a tone burst. Expand
Control of doppler shift compensation in the greater horseshoe bat,Rhinolophus ferrumequinum
SummaryFlyingRhinolophus ferrumequinum lower the frequency of the constant frequency part (fA) of the emitted sounds in order to compensate for Doppler shifts caused by the flight speed. The echoExpand
Peripheral auditory tuning for fine frequency analysis by the CF-FM bat,Rhinolophus ferrumequinum
Rhinolophus ferrumequinum compensates for Doppler shifts and keeps the frequency of the CF-portion of echoes constant at a reference frequency and the cochlea acts as a narrowly-tuned mechanical filter which is responsible for sharp tuning of the CM, N1-on and N 1-off threshold curves. Expand
Auditory fovea and Doppler shift compensation: adaptations for flutter detection in echolocating bats using CF-FM signals
The frequency range of the foveal areas with their flutter processing neurons overlaps exactly with the frequency range where DS compensating bats most likely receive echoes from fluttering insects, indicating that auditory fovea and DSC are adaptations for the detection and evaluation of insects flying in clutter.

Behavioural audiograms from the bat,Rhinolophus ferrumequinum
SummaryA conditioned heart rate and muscular activity response was used to measure behavioural audiograms inRhinolophus ferrumequinum. The audiograms are very similar to the evoked potential “on”Expand

SummaryEcholocating Rhinolophus ferrum-equinum (RF) and Rhinolophus euryale (RE) produce ultrasonic pulses which always consist of three parts. In the initial part the frequency rises by 1–12 KHzExpand
