    ..Thus, the localization component may be distributed among two signals separated in time, which has the advantage that both signals can be varied independently in the direction of emission and in amplitude...

    J Exp Biol 204:3843-54. 2001
    ..We propose that a combination of prey abundance and acoustic advantages could have led to repeated and convergent evolution of 'trawling' bats in different parts of the world...

    J Exp Biol 211:3174-80. 2008
    ..Our experimental data suggest that foraging areas very close to highways and presumably also to other sources of intense, broadband noise are degraded in their suitability as foraging areas for such 'passive listening' bats...
