About this book

The behavior of chimpanzees is complex and challenging: they can be cheerful, curious, and tolerant while also being capable of cunning, greed, and violence. Combining recent video footage with decades' worth of documented across- and within-population variations in behavior, Chimpanzee Behavior in the Wild compiles an extensive ethogram of a single species of mammal.

The wild chimpanzees of the Mahale Mountains and Gombe National Park, Tanzania, have been observed in particular, as well as those at other long-term fields in equatorial Africa. Chimpanzee Behavior in the Wild describes all aspects of chimpanzee behavior patterns, from locomotion and posture to feeding, facial expression, gestures, grooming, and vocal communication.

Chimpanzee Behavior in the Wild is accompanied by two DVDs, including 700 video clips recorded in the wild.
