We first learned that dogs bark when we were in preschool, and most of us have probably been hearing dogs bark every day since. But despite its constant presence in our lives the function of this vocalization is still highly contested. In this talk Dr. Kathryn Lord will take a comparative look at the dog bark with vocalizations in other species. Based on this and the bioacoustics of the bark itself, she will present a hypothesis on the function of the bark as the result of conflicting inner states. She will also present some new data that tests this hypothesis against the idea that barks have evolved in dogs as interspecific communication with humans. A question and answer session will follow, moderated by Dr. Monique Udell.
