Abstract

Like humans and bonobos, marmoset monkeys share a suite of phenotypes associated with the domestication syndrome. Ghazanfar et al. show that the size of their white facial fur patch—a common domestication phenotype—is correlated with vocal behavior. They then reveal that the two traits are causally linked during development.
