Signaling in a polluted world: oxidative stress as an overlooked mechanism linking contaminants to animal communication

Article English OPEN
Marrasco, Valeria; Costantini, David;

Abstract: The capacity to communicate effectively with other individuals plays a critical role in the daily life of an individual and can have important fitness consequences. Animals rely on a number of visual and non-visual signals, whose production brings costs to the... View more
