Production of species- and sex-specific vocalisation is a trait characteristic of all gibbons. However, the mechanisms of gibbon vocalisation ontogeny and the manner of developing sex-specific vocal patterns are not yet known. We recorded vocal behaviour of a juvenile male northern white-cheeked gibbon (Nomascus leucogenys). The male produced(More)
The long-term results of surgical and specific drug therapy were compared in a group of 57 patients with primary aldosteronism (PA) (46 with aldosterone-producing adenoma (APA), 11 with idiopathic hyperaldosteronism (IHA) and bilateral adrenal hyperplasia). Unilateral adrenalectomy completely normalized blood pressure (BP) in 77.1% of surgically treated(More)
Knowledge about vocal ontogeny and vocal plasticity during ontogeny in primate species is central to understanding the evolution of human speech. Vocalizations in gibbons (Hominoidea) are very interesting and contain complex species- and sex-specific patterns. However, ontogeny of gibbon songs is little studied. Here, we document regular production and(More)
