Abstract

In deer, as in other group-living mammals, communication plays a crucial role in social interactions. Acoustic signals are particularly widespread and used by individuals of all ages and sexes in different social contexts. Over the past 20 years the interest in deer vocal communication has increased with the development of new techniques in sound recording and acoustic analysis. In this paper, we present two studies on vocal communication in fallow deer and discuss the methodological approach we applied to investigate and test the information content of calls used during reproduction and mother-offspring interactions.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
