Calls Beyond Our Hearing: Unlocking the Secrets of Animal Voices by Holly Menino

Calls Beyond Our Hearing is a fascinating exploration of animals, their voices, and their survival. Traveling from Panama to England, Africa to Puerto Rico, Quebec to America, Holly Menino learns from scientists, explorers, and cutting-edge studies about a wide variety of animal species as they feed, play, fight, mate, and communicate for survival. Voice by voice, researchers assemble the building blocks of animal communication, such as: --How tungara frogs distinguish one mate from thousands of suitors--The purposeful song duets of rare birds in a remote island wilderness--Englands iconic red deer and the interloper that is diluting the species--How meerkats gather, warn or help each other, and reject outsiders with vocalizations--The communication of elephants in close groups and across great distances Calls Beyond Our Hearing will engage anyone interested in the musical world of creatures, and what animal communication can teach us about our own voices and songs.
