Data from: Control of signaling alignment during the dynamic courtship display of a jumping spider

Sebastian A. Echeverri, Nathan I. Morehouse & Daniel B. Zurek
During communication, alignment between signals and sensors can be critical. Signals are often best perceived from specific angles, and sensory systems can also exhibit strong directional biases. However, we know little about how animals establish and maintain such signaling alignment during communication. To investigate this, we characterized the spatial dynamics of visual courtship signaling in the jumping spider Habronattus pyrrithrix. The male performs forward-facing displays involving complex color and movement patterns, with distinct long- and...
