Male wolf spiders, Schizocosa ocreata (Hentz) (Araneae: Lycosidae), produce a complex courtship behaviour called jerky tapping. This multimodal display contains both visual and seismic components, and may convey information on condition. Previous work has shown that females prefer males that are in better condition, but questions remain about how condition affects male signalling. We tested whether male seismic signals are condition dependent by first categorizing components of the signal as… Expand
