About this book

The result of 15 years of observational study of a group of wild chimpanzees in the Ivory Coast's Tai forest. Chimpanzee behaviour is documented here in all its impressive diversity and variety, and placed within the broader context of research in behavioural ecology. The authors also succeed in shedding light on some of the central questions around the evolutionary relationships between the primates, and in particular the affinity between chimpanzees and humans.
'As natural history with an agenda, it doesn't get any better than this.' Ethology
