Reaching a Consensus: Terminology and Concepts Used in Coordination and Decision-Making Research
(Springer US, 2011)
Research on coordination and decision-making in humans and nonhuman primates has increased considerably throughout the last decade. However, terminology has been used inconsistently, hampering the broader integration of ...
Line Transect and Triangulation Surveys Provide Reliable Estimates of the Density of Kloss’ Gibbons (Hylobates klossii) on Siberut Island, Indonesia
(Springer US, 2012)
Estimating population densities of key species is crucial for many conservation programs. Density estimates provide baseline data and enable monitoring of population size. Several different survey methods are available, ...
A Chromosomal Inversion Unique to the Northern White-Cheeked Gibbon
The gibbon family belongs to the superfamily Hominoidea and includes 15 species divided into four genera. Each genus possesses a distinct karyotype with chromosome numbers varying from 38 to 52. This diversity is the ...
Bioacoustic field research: a primer to acoustic analyses and playback experiments with primates.
Acoustic analyses of primate vocalizations as well as playback experiments are staple methods in primatology. Acoustic analyses have been used to investigate the influence of factors such as individuality, context, sex, ...
Proximate factors underpinning receiver responses to deceptive false alarm calls in wild tufted capuchin monkeys: is it counterdeception?
Previous research demonstrates that tufted capuchin monkeys use terrestrial predator alarm calls in a functionally deceptive manner to distract conspecifics when feeding on contestable resources, although the success of ...
Baboon phylogeny as inferred from complete mitochondrial genomes.
Baboons (genus Papio) are an interesting phylogeographical primate model for the evolution of savanna species during the Pleistocene. Earlier studies, based on partial mitochondrial sequence information, revealed seven ...
Mitochondrial diversity and distribution of African green monkeys (chlorocebus gray, 1870).
African green monkeys (Chlorocebus) represent a widely distributed and morphologically diverse primate genus in sub-Saharan Africa. Little attention has been paid to their genetic diversity and phylogeny. Based on morphological ...
Explicit authenticity and stimulus features interact to modulate BOLD response induced by emotional speech.
Context has been found to have a profound effect on the recognition of social stimuli and correlated brain activation. The present study was designed to determine whether knowledge about emotional authenticity influences ...
Social monitoring in a multilevel society: a playback study with male Guinea baboons.
Keeping track of social interactions among conspecifics is a driving force for the evolution of social cognition. How social cognition, such as social knowledge, ties in with a species' social organization is, however, ...
Discordance Between Spatial Distributions of Y-Chromosomal and Mitochondrial Haplotypes in African Green Monkeys ( Chlorocebus spp.): A Result of Introgressive Hybridization or Cryptic Diversity?
Introgressive hybridization may cause substantial discordances among phylogenies based on different genetic markers. Such discordances have been found in diverse mammal species including primates. A recent study of ...
