    Am J Primatol 71:106-19. 2009
    ..We emphasize that long-term studies can provide crucial demographic and life-history data that improve our understanding of life-history evolution and adaptation and help to refine conservation strategies...

    Thomas Breuer
    Nouabalé Ndoki Project, Wildlife Conservation Society, Brazzaville, Republic of Congo
    PLoS Biol 3:e380. 2005
    ..In contrast to information from other great apes, which mostly show tool use in the context of food extraction, our observations show that in gorillas other factors such as habitat type can stimulate the use of tools...

    Peter D Walsh
    Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Deutscher Platz 6, 04103 Leipzig, Germany
    Am Nat 169:684-9. 2007
    ..These observations support a reassessment of ape-to-ape transmission as an amplifier of Ebola outbreaks...
