Many people contributed to the writing of The Language of Animals in 1995 and The Animal Communication Project.

My wife, Karen Hart, formerly a professor of biology at Peninsula College, and my son Robbie Hart, now a PhD biologist at the Missouri Botanical Garden and UMSL (more information), have contributed uncounted dinner-table conversations and e-mails about animal communication, and many helpful suggestions. Robbie has contributed some of the images on the ACP.

The Animal Communication Project represents a synthesis of thousands of pieces of information in the form of research papers (and “digests” for journalists), telephone interviews with researchers, first-hand observations, and thousands of e–mail messages, not to mention popular books, text books, popular magazine articles and videos.
