Birds Learn Socially to Recognize Heterospecific Alarm Calls by Acoustic Association
Animals in natural communities gain information from members of other species facing similar ecological challenges [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], including many vertebrates that recognize the alarm calls of heterospecifics vulnerable to the same predators . Learning is critical in explaining this widespread recognition [7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13], but there has been no test of the role of social learning in alarm-call recognition, despite the fact that it is predicted to be important in this context [14,...[Show more]
