"It's not what you said, but how you said it": Animal communication across sensory systems
Ever wonder why birds sing the loudest at the crack of dawn or how your dog knows you pet another dog and seems jealous? Animals have incredibly complex communication systems that span sensory systems at sensitivities way beyond human perception. Billings will discuss how animals use different sensory systems to communicate, why they communicate and how these communication systems evolved.
