Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (volume 28)


The Greater Horseshoe bat, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum emits a stereotyped echolocation sound consisting of a long constant-frequency portion (CF) terminated by a short frequency-modulated part (FM). During echolocation the frequency of the orientation pulse is controlled with high accuracy (Dopplershift compensation) and the duration of the call is shortened while the bat is approaching its targets.
