Результат исследований: Научные публикации в периодических изданияхстатьярецензирование


Vibratory communication was revealed in caddisflies of 13 species. Most frequent are percussive and fricative signals produced by the sternal processes of the 6th and 7th abdominal segments. The most complicated combinations of signals were observed in Glossosomatidae. Those of Goeridae, Beraeidae, and Hydroptilidae are somewhat more simple. Spontaneous signals of both sexes and precopulatory signals were studied. In Psychomyiidae and some other families flapping against a substrate was observed. The vibration of the entire body of a male sitting upon a female before copulation was observed in Hydropsychidae. The functional significance and evolution of vibratory signaling are discussed. -from Journal summary
