About this series
This book series provides a wide coverage of animal communication research including signal production and perception, development, behavioural mechanisms, signal function, population effects and the evolution of communication systems. It includes intra- and inter-specific communication, addresses communication in all taxa including humans and covers signals of all sensory modalities - visual, acoustic, chemical, tactile and electrical. Each volume summarises our current understanding of signals and communication in a particular context, this may be in a single taxonomic group or as a topic of current interest across a wide range of taxa. The series is aimed at scientists, university teachers and graduate students.
