Description
Do the songs and calls of animals have a purpose, and are these vocalizations more similar to speech or music? Holly Menino travels the world to seek out the prevailing scientific theories on animal communications, including how different species use their voices to seek a mate, compete for food, and warn others about predators. Along the way, Menino encounters scientists trying to decode the languages of frogs, elephants, deer, and whales, in order to discover a common basis for all animal communications.

"With her literate and lively style, [Menino] makes her book a scientific page-turner.... Inviting, rigorous and balanced."Washington Post
