This book considers research on insect acoustic behaviour from two divergent approaches to insect behaviour. The first approach involves the current rediscovery of sexual selection and involves the testing of many hypotheses concerning the relative importance of different behavioural strategies to the fitness of the individual. The other approach considers the role of specific neurones within the insect's auditory system. This book aims to integrate these aspects of evolutionary biology and neurophysiology. The book discusses the role of sound in the life and life-cycle of insects and includes a discussion of mate recognition, chorusing, calling and listening.
