Insects use song to communicate for many reasons, including parenting, mating, and warning predators away. When we think of insect song, we typically recall noisy choruses of crickets, cicadas, and katydids. However, most songs cannot be heard by the human ear because they travel as vibrations through plant stems and leaves. During this talk, we will hear a range of beautiful vibrational songs, explore why and how vibrational songs are produced, and use this little-known type of insect communication to gain insight into insect lives.
