female dominance may be realized during swarming, when short-distance mate-detection becomes possible. Monospecific swarming of copepods, consist- ing almost entirely of adults is widespread and serves probably several adaptive functions. According to Poulet & Ouellet (1982) this swarming behaviour may

Introduction The sexual communication system of animals is crucial for successful reproduction: it facilitates mate detection, serves as an indicator of identity, and can indicate mate quality among conspecifics (Pröhl et al., 2007 ). In animals, signals vary at multiple scales: within

diurnal insects (Poulton 1890; Cott 1940). There may be conflicting selection on flight speed, flash emission rate, and mate detection during searching phase. Optimally, male flight speed should be slow and flash emissions high to locate receptive females, providing predation pressure is weak. To minimize

. Section 4.2 discusses the steps taken towards automatic microinjection. It first presents two motion control schemes (one in task space and one in joint space) and discusses the performance achieved with the schemes. Then a method which facilitates an auto- matic detection of a contact between the cell
