Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (page 31) and index.
Formatted Contents Note: Spreading the word -- Make some noise! -- Voices underwater -- Animal dialects -- Bold and bright -- Moves with a message -- Let there be light! -- A tender touch -- Follow that pheromone -- What's that smell? -- Communicating with humans -- Threatened communication -- Animal expression.
Summary, etc.: Introduce young readers to the myriad ways in which the assorted members of the animal kingdom communicate. The means of animal communication turn out to be as intriguing and varied as the content that is being communicated, from mating signals and announcements regarding location and food availability to warning alarms and simple tokens of affection and protectiveness. Echolocation, pheromones, bioluminescence, scent marking, tail wagging, nuzzling, the elephants trumpet, the honeybees waggle dance, and more all get their due in this brief, but surprisingly comprehensive, volume. Perfect for animal lovers and whisperers, while also a useful resource for life science units.
Subject: Animal communication > Juvenile literature.
