  • Wild chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) produce low-frequency sounds by hitting the buttresses and/or trunks of trees. This “buttress drumming” occurs in discrete bouts that may be integrated into the phrase sequence of the chimpanzee’s long-distance vocalization, the “pant hoot.” The aim of this study was to investigate whether regional variation exists in the drumming behavior of male chimpanzees from Kibale National Park (Kanyawara community), Uganda, and Taï National Park, Ivory Coast… CONTINUE READING
