Description:

Sounds of web vibrations play in the background of this two-minute radio program as a scientist discusses her research into the web vibrations that male Australian redback spiders make during courtship. The scientist explains the scene from which the vibrations were recorded, noting that through the vibrations two male spiders can detect each other's presence on a female's web. Lasers are used to capture the vibration data. The scientist describes the data collection process and what she is trying to learn from the data. A transcript of the archived radio program is also available. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
