Examines how and why frogs, toads and insects communicate with each other, what messages are encoded within the sounds and how the intended recipients receive and decode these signals. Gerhardt and Huber draw on research from bioacoustics, behaviour, neurobiology and evolutionary biology to present the first integrated approach to this phenomenon. Also discusses how acoustic communication affects and reflects behavioural and evolutionary factors such as sexual selection and predator avoidance.
