Urban grasshoppers change their tune

2 posts in this topic

Grasshoppers that live in noisy urban environments are having to change their song, a study has found.

Researchers suggest that high levels of background noise may affect the grasshoppers' mating process.

They say the insects are forced to increase the volume of the low-frequency sections of their call.
