Neuroendocrine Regulation of Animal Vocalization: Mechanisms and Anthropogenic Factors in Animal Communication examines the underpinning neuroendocrine (NE) mechanisms that drive animal communications across taxa. Written by international subject experts, the book focuses on the importance of animal communication in survival and reproduction at an individual and species level, along with the impact the increased production and accumulation of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can have on disturbing these normal regulatory processes. Sections cover sound production, perception, processing and response across a range of animals, including fish, bats, birds, non-human primates and infant humans.

Each chapter covers the physiology of the animal's perceptive organs, auditory receptors and pathways, analyzing how neuroactive substances, endocrine control and chemical changes in the environment affects these factors. This book is a valuable resource for researchers and advanced students seeking first-rate material on the neuroendocrinological effects of animal behavior and communication.

- Presents the most comprehensive cross-taxa study of its kind
- Revolutionary in its focus on the impacts of EDCs in the regulatory processes guiding animal communication
- Discusses intra- and inter-sexually selected traits
- Emphasizes the importance of acoustic vocalization perception and processing for survival
- Analyzes recent governmental policies and the subsequent effects of EDCs on humans and wildlife
