BASS Seminar - Michael Caldwell

Shaking things up: New research on the roles of vibrations in animal communication.

Michael Caldwell
Assistant Professor, Biology
Gettysburg College

Animals communicate in a huge variety of ways, using flashy visual signals, intricate songs, and pungent aromas. Did you know that they can also use vibrations? Research in the Caldwell lab is starting to tease apart how frogs, snakes, and other creatures send vibrational signals to each other through the ground or through the plants they sit on. Wednesday’s seminar will report on recent and ongoing studies here at Gettysburg College into how vibrations are used by animals for mate-choice, aggression, foraging, and predator detection.
