In some cases, however, the opposite seems to be true: signalling interactions seem to be much more conspicuous than necessary to transmit information between participants (Zahavi, 1979). In these cases, it may be reasonable to assume that signals used here are, at least partly, ‘intended’ for eavesdroppers, P1: JZZ/... P2: JZZ/... e. that communication is no longer restricted to the interaction. This view is supported by work on the effects of audiences on the dynamics of interactions (Ch. 4) and recent work on altruism (see below).

At the same time, two other males were taking part in a similar interaction that could not be seen by the subject, allowing a control for changes in the male opponents providing information on the outcome rather than (or as well as) information from the dynamics of the interaction. , 1998) were then introduced to each of the four interactants (two seen and two unseen) in turn (Fig. 2aii) and the response measured. Males responded to individuals that they had seen lose by approaching and displaying sooner than with males that they had seen win.
