... and development of natural sciences in the seventeenth and eighteenth
century were papers with first descriptions of sound producing organs published (
e.g., tymbal: Casserius 1600, stridulatory structures in bugs: Ray 1710). There
appeared during the same time also first descriptions of acoustic behavior in
some singing insects (e.g., Rösel von Rosenhof 1746–1755; Poda 1761: p. 58, ''
Cimex iracundus sonum edit''). How- ever, the question of how insects
communicate, ...

Acoustical communication is based on the ability to produce vibrations in air,
water, or solid substrates, and to sense (hear) the vibrations. Only arthropods and
vertebrate animals are able to communicate using sound. About ten orders of
insects display acoustic communication. Sound dissipates, and is distorted and
reflected as it travels. The loss of sound energy is called attenuation. Sound
typically is used more for short distance communication than for long distance
communication, ...

For the majority of insects, acoustic communication functions primarily in
reproductive behavior and predator avoidance, but may also be used for
detecting prey or host species (parasitic flies, wasps; predatory water striders, ant
lions) or calling to conspecifics to form aggregations (sawfly larvae) or warn of
danger (termites, treehoppers). For humans, the most conspicuous sounds
commonly heard from insects are the loud chirps and trills of field crickets, the
long raspy choruses of ...

o Insects communicate with each other and obtain information about their
environment with infochemicals. o Insects use infochemicals called pheromones
for intraspecific communication, and these are classified according to their
function (e.g., sex pheromone, trail pheromone or alarm pheromone). o A wide
variety of pheromones are used by social insects to mediate all aspects of colony
organization and function. 0 Interspecific interactions are modulated by chemical
cues known as ...

Be a two-way, not a one-way, communicator. Dr. Phil McGraw Dr. Phil's 6 Rules
for Talking and Listening* Insects are not selfish creatures. Well, most are not.
When one member of a species locates a great food source, generally that
individual is more than willing to share the information with his or her kin. This is
also true when a nesting or an overwintering site is discovered, and sometimes
even when the opposite sex has been found. Insects communicate bad news as
well good.

Tyndall was ignored by modern scientists until recent years, when his discoveries
all of a sudden made sense. Phillip S. Callahan, a former U.S. Department of
Agriculture Insect Biophysics specialist and University of Florida professor,
expanded on Tyndall's studies, proving that plants and insects communicate
through emissions in the infrared frequency range. In his book, Tuning In to
Nature: Infrared Radiation and the Insect Communication System (Devin-Adair,
1976), he showed ...

His work transformed the study of island species from stories to a science and
made island biogeography theory useful to conservation efforts. Wilson's studies
of ants created breakthroughs of understanding in how insects communicate. He
and collaborators worked out the principles of how insects communicate by
chemicals. Subsequently, many researchers have found examples of chemical
communication among vertebrates and even among plants. Wherever he
traveled, at home ...
