Natures wonders: fruit fly inter species communication (Introduction)

QUOTES: 'We find flies can communicate with one another about an anticipated danger, which is suggestive of a fly ‘language’,” says Kacsoh. “Living together enables the flies to learn new dialects composed of different visual and scent cues.”

"Some species were capable of learning multiple dialects, revealing that the Drosophila have high neural plasticity or capacity for learning."

DAVID: since we know bees communicate by dancing, this should not be surprising. Even humans use body language.

I agree with you. The only surprise is that anyone should be surprised that other forms of life have their own language. Does anyone seriously believe that organisms can live together without communication? Or without the intelligence to know what they are communicating?
