Upon detecting a threatening element in their environment, humans and other animals typically produced alarm signals, i.e. structures whose function is to warn congeners of the imminence of danger. In this talk, I will present studies I have conducted with humans and wild chimpanzees of the Budongo forest (Uganda) to investigate: (i) which are the typical warning signals, (ii) how they develop in ontogeny and (iii) which sort of behavioural responses they trigger in recipients.
