(University of Lincoln) Scientists could revolutionise auditory devices used for monitoring and surveillance purposes after new research into bush-crickets' ear canals found that they have evolved to work in the same way as mammals' ears to amplify sound and modulate sound pressure. Until now, the mechanism responsible for such changes, which affects directional hearing, has been unknown.
