Primates communicate with each other using a wide range of signals: olfactory signals to mark territories, screams to recruit help while fighting, gestures to request food and facial expressions to initiate play. Primate Communication brings together research on all forms of interchange and discusses what we know about primate communication via vocal, gestural, facial, olfactory and integrated multimodal signals in relation to a number of central topics. It explores the morphological, neural and cognitive foundations of primate communication through discussion of cutting-edge research. By considering signals from multiple modalities and taking a unified multimodal approach, the authors offer a uniquely holistic overview of primate communication, discussing what we know, what we don't know and what we may currently misunderstand about communication across these different forms. It is essential reading for researchers interested in primate behaviour, communication and cognition, as well as students of primatology, psychology, anthropology and cognitive sciences.

'Primate Communication is appropriate for a wide audience, from those beginning in the field, to those already immersed in it. … [It] is an easily digestible, diverse, and thorough review of the importance of investigating – simultaneously - the multiple ways that primates communicate to each other. I highly recommend it for students, instructors and primate enthusiasts alike!' Alex K. Piel, Primate Eye
