UF: Moths shed light on how to fool enemy sonar

A new study shows that moths can outsmart sonar with a flick of their long tails, confusing the sonar cries bats use to detect prey and other objects. The collaborative work between University of Florida and Boise State University researchers is a first step in determining why bats are lured into striking a false target. The findings could have implications on sonar development for the military, said Akito Kawahara, assistant curator of Lepidoptera at the Florida Museum of Natural History on the UF campus, who was UF’s research leader on the project. ..
