Role of Electromagnetic Fields in Informational Interconnections between Organisms

  • A. S. Presman


Various kinds of long-range informational interconnections between animals have been known to biologists for a long time. Animals could not exist if they were unable to exchange signals by which the female calls the male, the mother her children, and individuals warn each other of danger, report the location of food, and so on. We know the physical nature of many forms of this signal transmission — sonic (and ultrasonic), photic, and by means of smells (see, for instance, McElroy and Seliger, 1962; Rait, 1964; Chauvin, 1965).
