Semple et al. 3 Eavesdropping Eavesdropping is defined as the act of extracting information from signalling interactions between other individuals (McGregor and Dabelsteen 1996, McGregor 2005). Two classes of eavesdropping have been identified: social and interceptive eavesdropping (McGregor and Dabelsteen 1996, Peake 2005). Social eavesdropping occurs when individuals gather information on other individuals by attending to their signalling interaction. This form of eavesdropping has important consequences for individuals that interact regularly with several individuals and have the opportunity to monitor social and communicative interactions of other group members.
