The first 20 contributions are presented under the heading General Aspects of Insect Sounds and explore such topics as sense organs involved in the vibratory communication of bugs, use of substrate vibrations for orientation, size-frequency relationships in insect vibratory signals, acoustic signals and temperature, song evolution and speciation in bushcrickets, inheritance of male sound characteristics in Drosophila species, vibratory communication and mate searching behavior in stoneflies, partitioning of acoustic transmission channels in grasshopper communities, acoustic evolutionary divergence in cicadas, and mutual eavesdropping through vibrations in a host- parasitoid interaction.
