  • Investigation of the information encoded in meerkats’ contact calls (close calls)
  • Use of multi-sensors tracking collars on foraging meerkats to disentangle their close call production and the maintenance of cohesion, movements and decision-making at the level of the group
  • Quantification of the level of individuality in meerkat vocalisations
