Overview

After a June 2000 conference in southern Bavaria where 30 researchers reported on behavioral variation among 13 populations of the African apes, it was decided not to publish a proceedings, but to integrate key findings by expanding or combining original papers, and asking for contributors from outside the conference. The findings are limited to those collected from wild populations of the two species of the hominid genus Pan. The 19 papers cover behavioral flexibility, social relations, female strategies, hunting and food sharing, and genetic diversity. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
