About this book

This volume examines fish sounds that have a proven signal function, as well as sounds assumed to have evolved for communication purposes. It provides an overview of the mechanisms, evolution and neurobiology behind sound production in fishes, and discusses the role of fish sounds in behavior with a special focus on choice of mate, sex-specific and age-specific signaling. Furthermore, it highlights the ontogenetic development of sound communication and ecoacoustical conditions in fish habitats and the influence of hormones on vocal production and sound detection.

Sound Communication in Fishes offers a must-have compendium for lecturers, researchers and students working in the fields of animal communication, fish biology, neurobiology and animal behavior.

Reviews

“The volume presents a detailed, fascinating, and up-to-date review of current knowledge on fish sound communication written by many of the leaders in the field. These authors do an excellent job of identifying the major gaps in the field to steer research along the most interesting and important avenues. … this up-to-date compilation will give both nonexperts and experts easy access to this information.” (Jennifer L. Rollins, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 90 (3), September, 2015)
