Main Focus

Several abiotic factors influence the transmission of sound through air. Luo et al. (2013) showed that especially high-frequency sound, such as echolocation calls, will be attenuated by globally raising temperatures. Prey detection and foraging efficiency in bats might be influenced by these conditions. We will test experimentally, if greater horseshoe bats (Rhinolophus ferrumequinum) are able to modify their call frequency and intensity depending on temperature and humidity levels to compensate for attenuated call distance.
