This text explores the scientific evidence for communication in animals, presenting a variety of examples using sight, sound, touch, smell and even electrical signals. As well as providing a historical background to the field, the book deals with modern concepts (such as animals using communication to deceive) and modern controversies, including the evolution of human language and the use of sign language by apes. It also tackles the often avoided topic of intentional communication and explores the future of communication between humans and animals.
