Summarizing research progress and prospects in the rapidly expanding area of animal communication networks, this book differs from other works on animal communication because it covers several animal groups and types of signal. It also highlights research at the interface with other disciplines (for example, psychology and physiology) and is intended for researchers in the field, advanced students and high-level undergraduates.
