  • SummaryThe abilities of 11 Greater Horseshoe bats (Rhinolophus ferrumequinum) to discriminate an oscillating from a stationary target by evaluating Doppler shifts in the echoes were studied in a two-alternative forced-choice procedure. At oscillation frequencies (fosc) from 5–30 Hz the best performing bat reached the threshold of 75% correct choices at approximately constant modulation depths of 60 Hz. Atfosc above 30 Hz the threshold modulation depths decreased with increasingfosc down to only… CONTINUE READING
