Dogs are Better at Communicating with Humans than Pigs, Study Finds

A new study has found that dogs are better at communicating with humans than pigs. The research, which compared the way companion animals from two domestic species react to out-of-reach rewards in the presence of a human, found that while both dogs and pigs pay attention to humans, only dogs initiate referential communication with them. The study suggests that certain characteristics related to how animals communicate with each other may be important for them to also communicate with humans, providing insights into the evolution of human-animal communication

Hearing the Unheard: New Biacoustic Tools Reveal Birds’ Secrets

David Dobbs' "What Conservation Sounds Like" describes how modern biacoustic technologies are transforming wildlife research and conservation. The article explores using autonomous recording devices (ARUs) and call recognizers like the new BirdNET app to capture and analyze natural noises. This novel method lets researchers constantly monitor animal and human presence in numerous places and develop a big new instrument sensitive to population and ecosystem change.
