1. Substrate-borne vibration signals play an important role in the life of the fiddler crabUca pugilator. In this study we investigated how a vibration signal is transmitted through the legs and body of the freely standing live crab and how it is modified on its way to the sites of the crab's vibration-receptive organs. 2. An optical technique, Laser Doppler Vibrometry (LDV), was used to measure the motion of the substrate (the input signal) and the motion of the dactylopodite, carpopodite… CONTINUE READING
