Week 9. The Function of Behaviors
November 2th: Communication and signaling
"Communication" is not a simple concept to define though we have seen
it repeatedly throughout this course. The guppies were communicating
in order to choose a mate, the electric fish were using another mode
of communication that is not as familiar to us humans.
