      Madsen, Elainie Alenkær (University of St Andrews, 2011-06-22) - Thesis
      A central issue in the study of primate communication is the extent to which individuals adjust their behaviour to the attention and signals of others, and manipulate others’ attention to communicate about external events. ...
    • Bonobo and chimpanzee gestures overlap extensively in meaning

      Cross-species comparison of great ape gesturing has so far been limited to the physical form of gestures in the repertoire, without questioning whether gestures share the same meanings. Researchers have recently catalogued ...
    • Chimpanzees, bonobos and children successfully coordinate in conflict situations

      Social animals need to coordinate with others to reap the benefits of group-living even when individuals' interests are misaligned. We compare how chimpanzees, bonobos and children coordinate their actions with a conspecific ...
    • Iconic gesturing in bonobos 

      Genty, E.; Zuberbühler, K. (2015) - Journal article
      We comment on a recent behavioral study in which we describe a human-like beckoning gesture in 2 groups of bonobos, used in combination with sexual solicitation postures. The beckoning gesture fulfils key criteria of deixis ...

      Genty, Emilie Juliette Pauline; Clay, Zanna; Hobaiter, Cat; Zuberbuehler, Klaus (2014-01-15) - Journal article
      ‘Contest hoots’ are acoustically complex vocalisations produced by adult and subadult male bonobos (Pan paniscus). These calls are often directed at specific individuals and regularly combined with gestures and other body ...

      Zimmermann, Felizitas; Zemke, Franziska; Call, Josep; Gomez, Juan-Carlos (2009-03) - Journal article
