The Role of Non-linear Phenomena in the Vocal Behaviour of Titi Monkeys (Callicebinae).
Jen is a member of our Behavioural Ecology Research Group.
Jen is researching nonlinear phenomena in the vocalisations of titi monkeys, particularly how they are used and if they relate to identity, emotional arousal, or are used to gain others attention. Jen will also investigate how vocal anatomy may relate to the production of nonlinear phenomena, and if this is impacted by habitat conditions. Additionally, they will compare the use of nonlinear phenomena among other primate species with varying body sizes and social structure.
