  • Ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs) have been detected in a range of small mammals, particularly rodents, and are associated not only with different social behaviours, e.g. sexual behaviour and aggression, but also with non-social behaviour in several species of mammals, including echolocation and as a by-product of respiration. Rodents in the Gliridae family are known to broadcast a variety of signals, but the behavioural relevance of the latter is poorly known. The aim of our study was to… CONTINUE READING
