We subjected males and females from these treatments to playback experiments using either recordings of live potential mates or computer generated tones to measure the effect of body size on convergence probability and characteristics. There was no direct relationship between male size and convergence behaviour and the proportion of pairs converging at harmonic frequencies did not vary with male-female body size combination. Convergence characteristic Large males Small males All males Range responded to — — — AP frequency responded to Hz Table 3 Convergence characteristics for male-female pairs from different treatments. The exact mechanisms of flight tone production, perception and processing in mosquitoes is currently being investigated [ 19 , 20 , 50 — 52 ], but are likely complex, involving integration of information from many neurons and the indirect flight muscles.
