Most alarm systems communicate with alarm monitoring centers through a telephone line using a complex touch-tone signal sent to the alarm monitoring station. With new digital communication technology such as digital subscriber lines (DSL), voice over internet protocol (VoIP), and wireless, the signals may or may not be received correctly by an alarm monitoring station. Salem, OR (PRWEB) November 14, 2013 As more homes and businesses decide to change from analog to digital telephone...

Chimps Vocalize With Purpose
2013-10-17 11:40:38

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online After analyzing the calls of chimpanzees in the wild, scientists with the University of York now believe these animals vocalize with a purpose rather than chant and howl at random. It was previously understood that the primates would simply shout when they were alarmed or felt they were in danger. However, Dr. Katie Slocombe and Dr. Anne Schel of the Department of Psychology at York recorded calls of several wild animals in Uganda and...

Social Bees Use Chemical Signals To Mark Dangerous Flowers
2013-03-14 13:32:43

FECYT - Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology Scientists already knew that some social bee species warn their conspecifics when detecting the presence of a predator near their hive, which in turn causes an attack response to the possible predator. Researchers at the University of Tours (France) in collaboration with the Experimental Station of Arid Zones of Almeria (Spain) have now demonstrated that they also use chemical signals to mark those flowers where they have previously...

City Birds Adjust To Their New Predators

FECYT - Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology Faced with the same threat, city and country birds do not react in the same way despite being from the same species. According to a new study, urban birds have changed their anti-predator behavior in new environments. When a bird is faced with a predator, its only objective is to escape. However, city birds do not react in the same way as their countryside counterparts, despite being from the same species. Urbanization plays an...

Male splendid fairy-wrens hitchhike onto predator calls to capture female attention Using a horror film to bring your date closer is a classic move in the teenage playbook. Now, a study of Australian birds finds that other animals use the same "scary movie effect" to attract female attention, by hitchhiking mating signals onto the calls of predators. Male splendid fairy-wrens, a sexually promiscuous small bird native to Australia, are known to sing a special song each time they hear the call...

Scientists at the University of Liverpool have discovered that male topi antelopes deceive their female counterparts in order to increase their chances of mating. The study of topi antelopes in Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve Park found that male antelopes snort and look intently ahead if an ovulating female begins to stray from their territory. This type of behavior suggests to the female that there is predator danger ahead. Typical predators of the topi include lions, cheetahs, leopards...

Researchers have discovered that an Australian pigeon species can alert other birds of danger with a "whistle" caused by flapping its wings when the bird takes off in alarm, AFP reported. Experts have documented the pigeon (Ocyphaps lophotes) for its well known metallic-sounding whistle that it makes when it flies from danger, but until now biologists had never analyzed the sound or explored whether it may have a use. However, two biologists from Australian National University in Canberra...

An article by Princeton Biologist Mark Laidre suggests that when an animal signals an intent to attack, chances are it's not bluffing. Using hermit crabs as subjects, Laidre tested previous mathematical models that predict animals have a significant incentive to give dishonest signals about their intentions. Some models suggest that animals may lie about their intentions up to 40 percent of the time. Laidre used dummy hermit crabs to invade the personal space of live crabs. Contrary to the...
