Gleaning bats that can detect motionless prey still prefer moving katydids

New paper: Geipel* I, Kernan* CE, Litterer AS, Carter GG, Page RA, ter Hofstede HM. 2020. Predation risks of signalling and searching: bats prefer katydids in motion in Biology Letters. When I was a kid, I would throw tiny pebbles or bits of wood in the air when bats were foraging, and the bats would often … Continue reading Gleaning bats that can detect motionless prey still prefer moving katydids

‘Next-generation’ sensor networks for small animals (and other news)

We have a new paper, "Thinking small: Next-generation sensor networks close the size gap in vertebrate biologging", out in the open-access journal PLOS Biology. Ohio State News did a great article summarizing the work. Congratulations to Bridget Brown, who successfully defended her MSc thesis, "Do bats use olfactory cues to find roosts?". Bridget is interested … Continue reading ‘Next-generation’ sensor networks for small animals (and other news)
