About this book

The animal world contains a diversity of communication systems because different organisms are able to produce and perceive different signals. Based on the approach laid out in the 1950s by Nobel laureate Nikolaas Tinbergen, this book looks at animal communication from the four perspectives of mechanisms, ontogeny, function, and phylogeny.
