|Summary of thesis||
My PhD will explore the vocal learning in sooty mangabeys (Cercocebus atys) by using observational and experimental methods to investigate how call structure and sound-meaning linkages are established and socially learned in sooty mangabeys. This research is part of a broad project investigating through a comparative approach how primates acquire the ability to socially learn to communicate. This project will be part of the Taï Monkey Project and the field work will be carried out at Taï National Park, Ivory Coast.
