Parent-offspring communication under the risk of predation in the white-browed scrubwren

Haff, Tonya

Description

Acoustic signaling is in important way that animals communicate, but the features that enhance the detectability of signals by receivers may also enhance detectability by eavesdropping predators. Parent-offspring communication in birds offers a superb window into how animals communicate under the risk of predation, as most species rely heavily upon vocal signaling and are particularly vulnerable to predation during the reproductive period.
