In June 2009, we used a novel technique to quantify dispersion patterns among a large group of calling male Epomophorus wahlbergi congregated around five neighboring and synchronously fruiting sycamore fig trees (Ficus sycomorus) in Kruger National Park, South Africa by using the physics of sound attenuation over distance to monitor and map positions of calling males without disturbing their mating behavior. The lack of fruiting sycamore fig trees across the area concentrated males among five… CONTINUE READING
