Ambient noise has the ability to mask important aspects of social communication. Often overlooked in agricultural, domestic, or conservation studies, the impacts of environmental noise can mask important features of social communication that enable species to engage each other. Here, I discuss the concerns of anthropogenic noise on social communication, and use the helmeted guinea fowl (Numida meleagris) as a model species in both popular and institutional purposes for understanding the effects of artificial noise on communication.

Keywords: Social communication; Helmeted guinea fowl; Sensory systems; Anthropogenic noise; Environmental noise
