Hey Enric, Thanks for liking my lab note... I thought it was pretty clever. I see that you are into big data. That is something my colleague Arik is into as he was a Rocket Scientist (no joking) in a previous life (that is a play on words). I also noticed you backed a project that was looking at demystifying skin color.... how can I argue that decoding the vocal communication system of Canids, one of the most socially complex branches of the evolutionary tree of life is equally, if not arguably more, interesting? I can try in a few sentences.... 1. Humans are a socially complex species, where the social system is made up of many different social roles, with each individual having interactions with many other individuals and relationships are often tested, meaning that the dominance patterns between individuals are not strictly set in stone, they can be and are tested. Also, humans have the most complex communication system known with rules for grammar and syntax, along with semantics, symbolism and self-referents), defined as language. - simplified social complexity predicts communicative complexity 2. But each time scientists study the communication system of another socially complex species we find that the uniqueness of humans and their "language" is shrinking..... (most recent evidence found in prairie dogs) Hooked yet? :)
