  • The responses of male and female Drosophila melanogaster to male courtship songs were investigated by videotaping single sexed groups of flies as they were exposed to simulated sounds: pulse, sine, pulse sine and rhythmic, and controls: white noise (males only), and silence (females only). Patterned sounds (1-min silence, 1-min sound) were delivered for 19 min: (1) in 6-dB steps from 60 to 108 dB; and (2) at 84 dB. This method enabled sound intensity effects to be distinguished from the effects… CONTINUE READING
