This study provides an overview of the vocalizations of Barbary macaques, Macaca sylvanus. [...] Key Method We give a general description of the contexts in which the different calls are uttered, with special regard to the age and sex of the caller. The vocal repertoire of Barbary macaques mainly consists of screams, shrill barks, geckers, low-frequency pants and grunts, with gradation occurring within and between call types. The spectrograms document that typically, Barbary macaques produce series of several…Expand

The Vocal Repertoire of Tibetan Macaques (Macaca thibetana) and Congeneric Comparisons
TLDR
Vocal complexity is explored and congeneric comparisons between Tibetan macaques and other species are made by identifying homologous and species-specific derived calls through visual inspection of spectrograms, as well as the phylogenetic, social, and ecological factors that may influence variability across the genus. Expand
The vocal repertoire of formosan macaques, Macaca cyclopis : Acoustic structure and behavioral context
TLDR
Comparisons of the vocal repertoire of Formosan macaques with those of other species in the genus Macaca indicate some similarities in composition and structural design. Expand
The vocal repertoire of Tibetan macaques (Macaca thibetana): A quantitative classification
TLDR
The vocal repertoire of Tibetan macaques contributes to the literature on the emergence of species‐specific calls in the genus Macaca with potential insights from social, reproductive, and ecological comparisons across species. Expand
Vocal Communication of Wild Crested Macaque (Macaca nigra).
TLDR
This study presents an overview over the vocal repertoire of wild crested macaques (Macaca nigra) in order to get a comprehensive picture of their communication. Expand
Baboon vocal repertoires and the evolution of primate vocal diversity.
TLDR
The findings corroborate the view that the structure of nonhuman primate vocalizations is highly conserved, despite the differences in social systems, and allow for plasticity at the level of the social relationships, mating patterns, and social organization. Expand
Vocal Repertoire of Cebus capucinus: Acoustic Structure, Context, and Usage
Researchers studying nonhuman primate vocal repertoires suggest that convergent environmental, social, and motivational factors account for intra- and interspecific vocal variation. We provide aExpand
Systematic Review of the Barbary Macaque, Macaca Sylvanus (Linnaeus, 1758)
Abstract The Barbary macaque, Macaca sylvanus (Linnaeus, 1758), is systematically reviewed, based on a study of 103 specimens and survey of relevant literature. This review includes analyses ofExpand
The vocal communication of the mongoose lemur (Eulemur mongoz): phonation mechanisms, acoustic features and quantitative analysis
TLDR
It is found that mongoose lemurs possess highly context-specific aerial alarm calls and territorial calls, while the ‘ croui-croui’ is usually emitted to communicate between individuals regrouping at sunset. Expand
The function of teeth chattering in male Barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus)
TLDR
It is suggested that teeth chattering serves an important role in coordinating the social interactions of male Barbary macaques. Expand
First insights into the vocal repertoire of infant and juvenile Southern white rhinoceros
TLDR
These findings provide the first evidence that infant and juvenile rhinoceros utter specific call types in distinct contexts, even if they grow up with limited social interaction with conspecifics. Expand

TLDR
The similarity of the results obtained in two outdoor enclosures in France and of those in the field indicated that dusk calling is common to this species, and not a behavior unique to captive animals. Expand

TLDR
Investigations of vocal communication in captive groups of lion-tailed macaques (Macaca silenus) revealed a repertoire of 17 basic patterns, some of which have not yet been found in any other member of the genus. Expand
Vocalizations of adult gelada baboons (Theropithecus gelada): acoustic structure and behavioural context.
TLDR
Vocalizations and accompanying behaviors of adult gelada baboons were studied in four one-male groups kept in large outdoor enclosures in the zoos of Stuttgart and Rheine and their evolution is discussed. Expand
Barbary macaques categorize shrill barks into two call types
  • J. Fischer
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Animal Behaviour
  • 1998
TLDR
I tested whether monkeys categorized calls according to the eliciting stimulus and whether their perception of calls coincided with the classification derived from the acoustic analysis, suggesting that call categorization is influenced by experience. Expand
Quantitative analysis of the vocal repertoire of squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sciureus).

TLDR
It was shown that the vocal repertoire of squirrel monkeys consists not of the discrete call types assumed up to now, but of graded ones, and that the animals could not be differentiated as individuals on the basis of the particular parameter of their calls. Expand
