Abstract

Gay Gibson and Lionel Feugère present novel research by Gay Gibson (NRI), Prof. Ian Russell (University of Brighton) and their colleagues who first demonstrated a unique form of sound communication used by male and female mosquitoes to locate a suitable mate; mosquitoes interact with each other by continuously altering their respective wing beat frequencies, creating a ‘mating duet.’ If they eventually harmonize at a frequency in common, a successful mating is the likely outcome.
