    • Apes have culture but may not know that they do 

      Gruber, Thibaud; Zuberbuehler, Klaus; Clement, Fabrice; van Schaik, Carel (2015-02-06) - Journal article
      There is good evidence that some ape behaviors can be transmitted socially and that this can lead to group-specific traditions. However, many consider animal traditions, including those in great apes, to be fundamentally ...
    • Chimpanzee alarm call production meets key criteria for intentionality 

      Schel, Anne Marijke; Townsend, Simon W.; Machanda, Zarin; Zuberbuehler, Klaus; Slocombe, Katie E. (2013-10-16) - Journal article
      Determining the intentionality of primate communication is critical to understanding the evolution of human language. Although intentional signalling has been claimed for some great ape gestural signals, comparable evidence ...
    • Chimpanzee lip-smacking facilitates cooperative behaviour 

      Fedurek, Pawel; Slocombe, Katie; Hartel, Jessica A.; Zuberbuehler, Klaus (2015-08-21) - Journal article
      Signalling plays an important role in facilitating and maintaining affiliative or cooperative interactions in social animals. Social grooming in primates is an example of an interaction that requires coordination between ...
    • Cross-species variation in gaze following and conspecific preference among great apes, human infants and adults 

      Kano, Fumihiro; Call, Josep (2014-05) - Journal article
      Although previous studies have shown that many species follow gaze, few have directly compared closely related species, and thus its cross-species variation remains largely unclear. In this study, we compared three great ...
    • Exceptional evolutionary divergence of human muscle and brain metabolomes parallels human cognitive and physical uniqueness 

      Bozek, Katarzyna; Wei, Yuning; Yan, Zheng; Liu, Xiling; Xiong, Jieyi; Sugimoto, Masahiro; Tomita, Masaru; Paeaebo, Svante; Pieszek, Raik; Sherwood, Chet C.; Hof, Patrick R.; Ely, John J.; Steinhauser, Dirk; Willmitzer, Lothar; Bangsbo, Jens; Hansson, Ola; Call, Josep; Giavalisco, Patrick; Khaitovich, Philipp (2014-05-27) - Journal article
      Metabolite concentrations reflect the physiological states of tissues and cells. However, the role of metabolic changes in species evolution is currently unknown. Here, we present a study of metabolome evolution conducted ...
    • Future thinking : children but not apes consider multiple possibilities 

      Seed, Amanda Madeleine; Dickerson, Katherine Leah (2016-07-11) - Journal item
      When anticipating the future, we draw on our past experience but must take uncertainty into account; for example, while preparing for a trip, we might pack a raincoat and sunglasses because of unpredictable weather. New ...
    • Predicting the vulnerability of great apes to disease : the role of superspreaders and their potential vaccination 

      Carne, Charlotte; Semple, Stuart; Morrogh-Bernard, Helen; Zuberbuehler, Klaus; Lehmann, Julia (2013-12-27) - Journal article
      Disease is a major concern for the conservation of great apes, and one that is likely to become increasingly relevant as deforestation and the rise of ecotourism bring humans and apes into ever closer proximity. Consequently, ...
    • Social network analysis shows direct evidence for social transmission of tool use in wild chimpanzees 

      Hobaiter, Catherine; Poisot, Timothee; Zuberbuehler, Klaus; Hoppitt, William; Gruber, Thibaud (2014-09-30) - Journal article
      Social network analysis methods have made it possible to test whether novel behaviors in animals spread through individual or social learning. To date, however, social network analysis of wild populations has been limited ...
