| Book Description: |
Natural selection has favoured animals that endeavour to deceive other animals to their advantage. Manipulation can be used, for example, within species during aggressive interactions, between predator and prey species or perhaps within or between species when foraging. If the sender always reveals its true intentions what prevents the receiver from taking advantage. This leads to the question 'are signals given in the animal kingdom ever honest?'
