  • Summary1.Adult females of the spider Cupiennius salei respond to electronically synthesized and sequentially presented models of male courtship vibration with their own vibration. By varying the different parameters contained in the ‘male’ vibration we measured the respective importance of these parameters for the attractivity of the signal and thereby defined filter properties of the female's innate releasing mechanism.2.Both spectral and temporal properties of the male vibration influence the… CONTINUE READING
