Life in a Noisy World: How Animals Use and Respond to Sound
Close your eyes and listen, anywhere in the world, and you will hear a plethora of sounds. My talk will explore ways in which this acoustic environment is of fundamental importance to animal behaviour. I will consider the use of vocalisations to mediate both social conflict and cooperative actions, show that animals eavesdrop on the vocal signals of other species, and discuss how noise produced by human activities can have an impact on wildlife.
There will be a drinks reception following the lecture.
