The evolution of communication requires the co-evolution of two abilities: the ability to send useful signals and the ability to react appropriately to perceived signals. This fact poses two related but distinct problems, which are often mixed up: (1) the phylogenetic problem regarding how can communication evolve if the two traits that are necessary for its emergence are complementary and seem to require each other for providing reproductive advantages; (2) the adaptive problem regarding how… Expand
