Three rhesus monkeys were individually trained to emit relatively prolonged calls in an experimental arrangement which required that intensity of each call be maintained within prescribed limits. Each animal learned to produce the calls when a stimulus signaled the appropriate occasion. Stimulus control over the calls was demonstrated by increased number of calls and increased average duration of calls when the signal was present, together with diminished number of calls when the signal was not present.
