...Christopher J. Clark; Damian O. Elias; Richard O. Prum SUMMARY Males in the ‘bee’ hummingbird clade produce distinctive, species-specific sounds with fluttering tail feathers during courtship displays. Flutter may be the result of vortex shedding or aeroelastic interactions. We investigated...

... alternative mating tactics in field crickets Teleogryllus oceanicus ( Bailey and Zuk, 2008 ; Bailey et al., 2010 ). Thus, rearing environment could be crucial in modelling mating behaviour, especially in species that exhibit elaborated courtship displays. In species that exhibit lek mating systems, males...

...Michiya Kamio; Matthew A. Reidenbach; Charles D. Derby SUMMARY The nature of the courtship signalling used by a species is shaped by many factors, one of which is its habitat. Male blue crabs, Callinectes sapidus , have a courtship display in which they elevate their body by standing high...

... of multi-component signals has received considerably less attention. Here, using synchronous high-speed video and laser vibrometer recordings followed by experimental manipulations of putative sound-producing structures, we explored the mechanisms of seismic signal production in the courtship display...

...,1978 ; Miller and Inouye,1983 ; Craig, 1984 ; McBurney, 1989 ), or in polygynous or lek-breeding species as elements of complex courtship displays( Prum, 1998 ). Morphologically,birds use diverse structures for sound production, and feather modifications have been described for many species known...

... of significantly larger diameter in males than in females. Males generate courtship sounds and females do not. The function of the swimbladder muscle was tested using behavioral experiments. Male P. adspersus normally produce acoustic courtship displays when presented with female-like electrical stimuli. However...
