It covers our simple voice elements; the numerous basic or irregular voice forms; the communicative makes use of of physiological and emotional reactions like laughter, crying, sighing, coughing, sneezing, and so on.

1). The extensive survey took 1 month to complete and was repeated every three months over two years. The intensive survey took 5 days to complete and was repeated monthly over one year. At both sites, data on elephant feeding ecology and dung counts were concurrently collected, and are described in later chapters. Rainfall was measured by colleagues daily at two sites; the Mbeli Bai gorilla research station in the NNNP, and at Bomassa. Monthly averages were calculated for each site. Mbeli rainfall data were used as a covariate in the analysis of extensive survey data, while Bomassa data were used for the intensive survey analysis.

Vegetation of the Ndoki Forest Patchiness of food sources The scale of patchiness of three food sources, THV, browse:non browse ratio, and fruit was compared across all habitat types, and also within terra firma only, irrespective of vegetation type. 15 shows the Pearson’s correlation coefficients between combinations of variables for different segment sizes along the survey track. In terra firma forests, as segment size increased there was an increasing correlation between fruit and THV, dicot browse and fruit, and dicot browse and THV.
