Animals use sensory information when making decisions regarding social status. In particular, crayfish use chemical and possibly mechanical signals to communicate past social history and status. These signals originate in the urine that is actively released during agonistic encounters. We examined the transfer of social information via chemical and mechanical signals by using (1) neutrally buoyant particles, along with a projected light sheet to visualize flow generation, (2) a fluorescent dye… CONTINUE READING
