About the Authors
  • Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) and bonobos (Pan paniscus) are the only two species of the genus Pan, and are humans' nearest relatives. This book is an extensive review of the most recent observations from field studies on the diversity of Pan social behavior, with contributions from many of the world's leading experts. A wide range of social behavior is discussed including tool use, hunting, reproductive strategies, conflict management, demographic variables and ecological constraints. In addition to interspecies behavioral diversity, this text describes exciting new research into variations between different populations of the same species.

    • Compares and contrasts very different behaviours of our two closest relatives, the chimpanzee and the bonobo
    • Written largely by the new generation of primatologists, covering wild populations that have not been reported on previously
    • Offers extensive review of the new field of ecological genetics in chimpanzees and bonobos, as well as new perspectives on well established topics such as female mating strategies

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This is an excellent book on the state of the art and I recommend it to you. It contains new data, evaluates old theories, proposes new ideas, indicates the limits of our knowledge and demonstrates that data always trump theory, no matter how seductive the logic.' Ethology

    'Certainly the calibre of the editorship and contributing authors augers well for the quality of the resulting volume which is divided into five parts: Behavioural flexibility; Social relations; Female strategies, Hunting and food sharing; Genetic diversity.' Primate Eye

    'Most primatologists will find something of interest and value in this edited volume, and at the unusually low price at which it is offered, I can recommend it highly.' Folia Primatologica
