Information sent by multimodal communication (i.e. signals in multiple sensory modalities) may be redundant (‘backup’ signals) or may vary in content with each mode (‘multiple messages’). Males of the brush-legged wolf spider, Schizocosa ocreata (Hentz) (Araneae: Lycosidae), use complex multimodal (visual and seismic) courtship signals. The visual component has previously been shown to be a condition-dependent signal used by females in mate choice. Here, we examine female choice based on… Expand
