- Echolocation by the barbastelle bat, Barbastella barbastellusA Denzinger
Lehrstuhl Tierphysiologie, Universitat Tubingen, Germany
J Comp Physiol A 187:521-8. 2001..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...
- Echolocation signals reflect niche differentiation in five sympatric congeneric bat speciesBjörn M Siemers
Animal Physiology, Zoological Institute, University of Tubingen, Morgenstelle 28, 72076 Tubingen, Germany
Nature 429:657-61. 2004....
- The acoustic advantage of hunting at low heights above water: behavioural experiments on the European 'trawling' bats Myotis capaccinii, M. dasycneme and M. daubentoniiB M Siemers
Department of Animal Physiology, Zoological Institute, University of Tubingen, Auf der Morgenstelle 28, 72076 Tubingen, Germany
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...
- Acoustic mirror effect increases prey detection distance in trawling batsBjörn M Siemers
Animal Physiology, Zoological Institute, Tubingen University, Auf der Morgenstelle 28, 72076, Tubingen, Germany
Naturwissenschaften 92:272-6. 2005..These acoustic advantages may have favoured the repeated evolution of trawling behaviour...
- Foraging bats avoid noiseAndrea Schaub
Zoological Institute, Department of Animal Physiology, University of Tubingen, Auf der Morgenstelle 28, 72076 Tubingen, Germany
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...
- Horseshoe bats make adaptive prey-selection decisions, informed by echo cuesKlemen Koselj
Animal Physiology, Institute for Neurobiology, University of Tubingen, Auf der Morgenstelle 28, 72076 Tubingen, Germany
Proc Biol Sci 278:3034-41. 2011..This calls for further research into the evolutionary selection pressures that sharpened the species's decision-making capacity...
