alarm response

Quick Reference

Signals emitted by an animal that serve to warn others of a danger the individual has perceived. The signals may be visual (e.g. the white tail of a rabbit, displayed when running), aural (e.g. the call of a member of a flock of ground-feeding birds), or olfactory (substances emitted by some fish and invertebrates).
