  • Evidence suggests that some alarm calls function as pursuit-deterrent signals, informing the predator that it has been spotted and it might as well break off the hunt and stop wasting everyone’s time (Hasson 1991; Caro 1995). Bergstrom & Lachmann (2001) developed the watchful babbler game to identify the necessary conditions for alarm calls to function as a reliable signalling system between prey and predator. They derived two main results: (1) prey must accurately assess the risk of predation… CONTINUE READING
