The secret communication of gibbons has been interpreted for the first time in a study published in the open access journal BMC Evolutionary Biology. The research reveals the likely meaning of a number of distinct gibbon whispers, or ‘hoo’ calls, responding to particular events and types of predator, and could provide clues on the evolution of human speech.
