Echolocation calls in Central American emballonurid bats : signal design and call frequency alternation

  title={Echolocation calls in Central American emballonurid bats : signal design and call frequency alternation},
  author={' K.Jung and Elisabeth Klara Viktoria Kalko and von Helversen},
In southern Central America, 10 species of emballonurid bats occur, which are all aerial insectivores: some hunt flying insects preferably away from vegetation in open space, others hunt in edge space near vegetation and one species forages mainly over water. We present a search call design of each species and link signal structure to foraging habitat. All emballonurid bats use a similar type of echolocation call that consists of a central, narrowband component and one or two short, frequency… CONTINUE READING
