- Ant fishing by wild chimpanzees is not lateralisedL F Marchant
Department of Anthropology, Miami University, Oxford, OH 45056, USA
Primates 48:22-6. 2007..The evolutionary transition from arboreality to terrestriality may have been a key enabler for the origins of human laterality...
- Arboreal nesting as anti-predator adaptation by savanna chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes verus) in southeastern SenegalJ D Pruetz
Department of Anthropology, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa 50011, USA
Am J Primatol 70:393-401. 2008..However, Fongoli chimpanzees regularly build arboreal nests for sleeping, even under minimal predation pressure, and this requires explanation...
- Genotyping aids field study of unhabituated wild chimpanzeesW C McGrew
Department of Zoology, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio 45056, USA
Am J Primatol 63:87-93. 2004..We tested this premise on an unhabituated wild population of western chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes verus) at Mont Assirik, Senegal. Genotyping yielded information on kinship, group size, party size and composition, sex ratio, and ranging...
- Bilateral asymmetry in the limb bones of the chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes)L A Sarringhaus
Department of Anthropology, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio 45056, USA
Am J Phys Anthropol 128:840-5. 2005..These findings imply behavioral laterality in upper limb function in chimpanzees, and suggest a complementary relationship between precision and power...
- Survey of savanna chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes verus) in Southeastern SénégalJ D Pruetz
Department of Zoology, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, USA
Am J Primatol 58:35-43. 2002..We sought to replicate the standards set by the SAPP project, except when technological innovations allowed improvement in data collection procedures (e.g., the global positioning system (GPS))...
- Etho-archaeology of manual laterality: well digging by wild chimpanzeesW C McGrew
Leverhulme Centre for Human Evolutionary Studies, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK
Folia Primatol (Basel) 78:240-4. 2007..The volumes of left- versus right-side piles do not differ, suggesting a lack of behavioural laterality, but this needs to be verified by further, direct observational data...
