Comparison of scanning behavior in edge and open space.
Scanning behavior of bats flying in an edge and open space derived from single microphone recordings. (A) Histogram of differences in SPL between consecutive signals in edge space (249 calls during 15 sequences) as compared to (B) histogram of differences in SPL in open space (203 calls during 20 sequences). Exemplary call sequences with distinct alternating changes of signal SPL in edge space (C) and in open space (E). Examples with more irregular changes in signal SPL for edge space (D) and for open space (F).
