A formal test of the sociality hypothesis is provided alongside alternative explanations for the evolution of communicative complexity among closely related species and used new phylogenetic methods to investigate the factors underlying communication evolution.
Social Complexity Can Drive Vocal Complexity
Results indicate that social complexity can influence communicative complexity in this species, and group size, a fundamental component of social complexity, influences the complexity of a call functioning in the social organization of Carolina chickadees.
Does Sociality Drive The Evolution Of Communicative Complexity? A Comparative Test With Ground‐Dwelling Sciurid Alarm Calls
A continuous measure of social complexity is derived from demographic data and used to explain variation in alarm repertoire size in ground‐dwelling sciurid rodents, and could be used by other researchers to test explicit evolutionary hypotheses that involve social complexity.
The vocal repertoire in a solitary foraging carnivore, Cynictis penicillata, may reflect facultative sociality
This study of the vocal repertoire of the yellow mongoose is, to the authors' knowledge, the most complete to have been conducted on a facultatively social species in its natural habitat.
Affiliation in the social interactions in captivity of the torch tail rat, Trinomys yonenagae (Rodentia: Echimyidae)
The results indicate that there is a high level of affiliation mediated by acoustic communication both for males and females and that no anxiety is associated with social context, especially in females.
Chick-a-dee call variation in Carolina chickadees and recruiting flockmates to food
In Carolina chickadees, chick-a-dee calls containing a large number of D notes may function to recruit other flock members to a discovered food source.

Patterns of range use, range defense, and intergroup spacing in moustached tamarin monkeys (Saguinus mystax)
Patterns of group spacing and habitat utilization in neighboring groups of marked free-ranging moustached tamarin monkeys inhabiting Padre Isla, a small island in the Amazon Basin of northeastern Peru, are examined and the set of behavioral mechanisms used by tamarins to maintain the spatial isolation and social integrity of individual groups are described.
Immune Defense and Host Sociality: A Comparative Study of Swallows and Martins
It is shown that the impact of parasites on host reproductive success was positively associated with the degree of sociality in the bird family Hirundinidae, however, the cost of parasitism in highly colonial species was countered by high levels of T‐ and B‐cell immune responses.
