Production of food-associated calls in wild male chimpanzees is dependent on the composition of the audience
TLDR
The data show that males were significantly more likely to produce food- associated calls if an important social partner was nearby, regardless of the size of the audience or the presence of oestrus females, indicating that food-associated calls are socially directed and serve a bonding function.
Playbacks of food-associated calls attract chimpanzees towards known food patches in a captive setting.
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that rough grunts elicit an approach response in receivers, while providing no evidence that they repel, and provide evidence that receivers may approach roughgrunts even if they do not intend to feed.

Playbacks of Food-associated Calls Attract Chimpanzees Towards Known Food Patches in a Captive Setting
TLDR
Testing how acoustic playbacks of rough grunts from one of two known, identical food patches affected receivers’ foraging decisions in a captive setting found that participants were more likely than chance to first investigate the patch from which rough-grunts, but not control calls, were broadcast.

Monkeys crying wolf? Tufted capuchin monkeys use anti-predator calls to usurp resources from conspecifics

TLDR
The hypothesis that alarm calls are used by capuchins to reduce the effects of feeding competition is supported, whether this is intentional on the part of the caller requires further investigation.
The Social Function of Food‐Associated Calls in Male Chimpanzees
TLDR
The results of this study show that males tended to feed for significantly longer after giving food‐associated calls upon initiating feeding than after remaining silent, and suggest that one of the functions of food calling in chimpanzees might be signaling that the caller is likely to initiate and prolong a feeding bout.

Food-associated Calls of Tufted Capuchin Monkeys (Cebus Apella Nigritus) Are Functionally Referential Signals
TLDR
It is explored the possibility that tufted capuchin monkeys have food-associated calls, vocalizations that are functionally referential and may provide information about the presence of food to other individuals in the group and the degree of context specificity of the vocalizations is evaluated.

Despite extensive documentation in many taxa of vocalizations specific to feeding contexts, little is known of the variables leading to production of food-associated calls. We thus experimentally
Factors affecting the rates of food calls given by red-bellied tamarins
TLDR
Results suggest that red-bellied tamarin food calls are not entirely governed by opportunities or inclinations to share food, nor are they solely a function of arousal in the presence of large amounts of preferred food.

We examined (i) whether bonobos display a specific food-calling behavior when discovering a hidden food resource, (ii) whether the presence of competitors affects this behavior, and (iii) whether
