Data from: Socially foraging bats discriminate between group members based on search-phase echolocation calls

Jenna Kohles, Gerald Carter, Rachel A. Page & Dina Dechmann
Animals have evolved diverse strategies to use social information for increasing foraging success and efficiency. Echolocating bats, for example, can eavesdrop on bats foraging nearby, because they shift from search-phase calls to feeding buzzes when they detect prey. Feeding buzzes can directly convey information about prey presence, but it is unknown whether search-phase calls also convey social information. Here we investigated whether search-phase echolocation calls, distinct calls produced by some bat species to scan large...
