Factors Affecting Agonistic Communication in Rhesus Monkeys (Macaca Mulatta) FACTORS AFFECTING AGONISTIC COMMUNICATION IN RHESUS MONKEYS (MACACA MULATTA) by G. W. MOLLER, H. F. HARLOW and G. D. MITCHELL. (Wisconsin Regional Primate Research Center, Madison, Wisconsin, U.S.A.) (With 9 Figures) (Rec. 27-X-1967) INTRODUCTION In 1872 DARWIN published The expression of the emotions in man and animals, an attempt to describe the expressive movements and postures of primates and other animals. Since that time the research literature dealing with communication in nonhuman primates has increased rapidly. A considerable body of data on vocalizations, postures, and facial expressions of primates in the wild now exists, including the observations of CARPENTER (1934) on the howler monkey, ALTMAN (1962) on the rhesus monkey, JAY (1965) on the langur, HALL & DEVORE (1965) on the baboon, GOODALL (1965) on the chimpanzee and SCHALLER (1965) on the gorilla. These reports from the field include many examples which show how important and use- ful communicative behaviors are to the social life of the primates. Beyond such data obtained in the wild there exist observational and experimental laboratory studies on more limited aspects of primate com- munication. Investigations of the development of rhesus monkeys indicate that vocalizations and postures are primarily nonlearned, are controlled by http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Behaviour Brill
