Communication forms the basis of biological interactions. While the use of a single communication mechanism (for example visual communication) by a species is quite well understood, in nature the majority of species communicate via multiple mechanisms. Here, I review some mathematical results on the unexpected behaviors that can be observed in biological aggregations where individuals interact with each other via multiple communication mechanisms.
