    About This Project

    Individually distinct vocalizations allow animals to respond differently based on caller identity, sex, and group membership. Western gorillas live in densely forested habitats and vocalize often. However, no experiments have been conducted yet to explore the cognitive processes underlying their vocal communication. Do they recognize individuals from their calls alone? Are some calls easier to recognize than others? And if so, what might be the evolutionary explanation?

    Blast off!
