Sound Signalling in Orthoptera

Robinson, David J. and Hall, Marion J. (2002). Sound Signalling in Orthoptera. In: Evans, Peter ed. Advances in Insect Physiology, Volume 29. Elsevier Ltd, pp. 151–278.



The sounds produced by orthopteran insects are very diverse. They are widely studied for the insight they give into acoustic behaviour and the biophysical aspects of sound production and hearing, as well as the transduction of sound to neural signals in the ear and the subsequent processing of information in the central nervous system. The study of sound signalling is a multidisciplinary area of research, with a strong physiological contribution. This review considers recent research in physiology and the links with related areas of acoustic work on the Orthoptera.
