Understanding signal design during the pursuit of aerial insects by echolocating bats: tools and applications.

Abstract

Bats are among the few predators that can exploit the large quantities of aerial insects active at night. They do this by using echolocation to detect, localize, and classify targets in the dark. Echolocation calls are shaped by natural selection to match ecological challenges. For example, bats flying in open habitats typically emit calls of long duration… (More)
