Evolution of acoustic communication

Postby Pajarita » Wed Feb 12, 2020 10:01 am

Super, SUPER interesting study which traces the origin (100 milltion to 200 million years ago) and evolution of acoustic communication (meaning, using the respiratory system to emit sounds -like birds song, dogs bark, etc - basically: voice!). Just a little tidbit of info to whet your appetite: it started with nocturnal animals!
