Triple PhD Graduations for the ABG Congratulations to Dr Nicole Butler, Dr Andrea Narvaez and Dr Jose Ramos.
Signaling species occurring in sympatry areoften exposed to similar environmental constraints, so similar adaptations to enhance signal efficacy are expected.
The environment in which animal signals are generated has the potential to affect transmission and reliable detection by receivers. To
Habitat characteristics influence the efficacy of animal communication, and population differences insignal structure due to habitat variation are well known
Thesis submissions December 2016 | Nicole Butler became the first ABG student to submit a PhD thesis: Comparing the Anti-Predator
Competition between animals for limited resources often involves signaling to establish ownership ordominance. In some species, the defended resource relates
Australia’s dragon lizards (Family: Agamidae) employ dynamic visual signals in a variety of contexts but the signalling behaviour of this
