Arthropod acoustic communication is a primary focus at the Patek Lab. Here you can find our acoustically oriented research projects along with sounds and video of spiny lobsters (Palinuridae) and mantis shrimp (Stomatopoda).
- Our Lab
The Patek Lab studies the mechanics of animal motion in both mantis shrimp (Stomatopoda) and ants. Here you can find these research projects along with images, sounds, and video of animal movement.
Our research has larger implications both in the field of biology and our planet’s ecosystem. Explore connections between Patek Lab research and the surrounding world!
