This volume explains the key ideas, questions and methods involved in studying the hidden world of vibrational communication in animals. The authors dispel the notion that this form of communication is difficult to study and show how vibrational signaling is a key to social interactions in species that live in contact with a substrate, whether it be a grassy lawn, a rippling stream or a tropical forest canopy. This ancient and widespread form of social exchange is also remarkably understudied. A frontier in animal behavior, it offers unparalleled opportunities for discovery and for addressing general questions in communication and social evolution. In addition to reviews of advances made in the study of several animal taxa, this volume also explores topics such as vibrational communication networks, the interaction of acoustic and vibrational communication, the history of the field, the evolution of signal production and reception and establishing a common vocabulary.

  • Vibrational Communication in Animals

    Peggy S M Hill

    In creatures as different as crickets and scorpions, mole rats and elephants, there exists an overlooked channel of communication: signals transmitted as vibrations through a solid substrate. Peggy Hill summarizes a generation of groundbreaking wo...

Recensioner i media

"Studying Vibrational Communication is a significant contribution and starting point for understanding this mode of communication. ... For anyone interested in vibrational communication or the evolution of animal communication, this is a must read whether it is from cover to cover or one of the selected chapters. This volume is thought-provoking, informative, a useful reference, and an up-to-date summary of the current and past knowledge of vibrational communication in insects." (Richard W. Hofstetter, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 90 (3), September, 2015)
