Decoding the locational information in the orb web vibrations of Araneus diadematus and Zygiella x-notata

Abstract:

A spider’s web is a multifunctional structure that captures prey and provides an information platform that transmits vibrational information. Many physical factors interact to influence web vibration and information content, from vibration source properties and input location, to web physical properties and geometry. The aim of the study was to test whether orb web vibration contains information about the location of the source of vibration. We used Finite Element Analysis model webs to contr...
