Michael Caldwell's research featured in Animal Behaviour.

01/28/2010

Michael Caldwell's paper entitled "Is it safe? Red-eyed treefrog embryos assessing predation risk use two features of rain vibrations to avoid false alarms" was chosen by the executive editor as the featured article in the February issue of Animal Behaviour.  This paper describes some of Michael's dissertation research on how red-eyed treefrogs use vibrations as a source of information, and has broad implications for our understanding of how animals distinguish predator cues from other benign stimuli.
