How can we explain the peacock's beautiful tail decorations, or the wonderful song of the nightingale? Why are some smells nice and others nasty? Understanding the signalling systems of nature has wide-ranging relevance including biological conservation and human communication. Animal Signals provides a state-of-the-art update on current knowledge within this rapidly developing field. Written by leading international scientists, it provides a comprehensive overview of the fascinating diversity of animal signals and signalling functions. Combining reviews and novel research, the book is aimed both at students and professional scientists.
