SETI and "information theory"

Greetings all,

    Just curious if there are any individuals specializing in animal 
communication on our list-- that have worked or collaborated with SETI, 
the organization that searches for signs of extra-terrestrial 
communication patterns in space?

    I am helping an associate with qualitative research for an astronomy 
telecourse, and during an interview with a subject matter expert with a 
member of SETI, a number of different species were mentioned relative to 
their "communication system complexity," "Ziff's law slope", and 
"Shannon Entropy".

    Is anyone in the group by chance involved with SETI's collaborative 
projects using human and animal communication patterns as a basis to 
qualify extraterrestrial communication?
