Date Created: 08/29/16
Tuesday, August 30, 2016 The New Chimpanzees - Takayoshi Kano (Primatologist) studied bonobo’s. Bonobo’s are unlike other chimpanzees in the sense that they have an alpha female who dominates the males of the group. The power is shared between a group of mother’s and their adult sons. Males stay with mothers there whole life while the adolescent females are accepted into neighboring groups. Bonobo’s are peaceful group where the mothers almost never discipline their young and instead of fighting they use sex. Sex is used to form bonds within the group and is NOT limited to sex, age, or gender. - Jane Goodall (Primatologist/Anthropologist) studied chimpanzees in Gombe and was the first person to be accepted by wild chimpanzees. She revolutionized the way we look at chimpanzees and ourselves. - Christophe Boesch (Primatologist) studied chimpanzees in the rainforests of Thailand. He studied their use of tools (ant catching and cracking nuts) and watched how the mothers taught their young children how to do certain tasks. He used this evidence to suggest that our early ancestors used similar tools. - Richard Wrangham (Primatologist) hypothesized that chimpanzees used certain leaves for medicinal purposes (if chimps had worms they would eat certain leaves) and that one day we might be able to look to chimpanzees for answers to certain ailments. Also stated that culture was the reason that some groups of chimpanzees ate certain foods and other groups didn’t (why some groups cracked nuts with sticks and others dipped sticks into ant holes) - Charlette Uhlenbroek (Zoologist) studied the calls of chimpanzees within groups to determine if they were able to have conversations with each other and what each call symbolized. She followed a male chimpanzee around and recorded the time, place, and pitch of each call. Her assistant, Issa Salala, did the same with other chimpanzees in the group to try and piece together the conversation. - Craig Stanford (Anthropologist) studied the relationship between the Red Colobus monkey’s and chimpanzees to reveal early evidence of hunting for meat. Chimpanzee hunting groups visited the neighboring groups of Colobus monkey’s and killed them for their meat. Meat is valuable and is used as currency for favors. While eating meat chimps eat leaves they otherwise wouldn’t touch. Chimps eat roughly 20% of colobus monkey’s within their range each year. The hunting groups are led by the alpha male. - Chimps invented culture within their own society through the invention of tools, symbols, language, and gestures. An example of this would be ant fishing which is 1 Tuesday, August 30, 2016 seen in some chimpanzee groups but not within others. These traits are passed on from mother to babies. If culture exists within these groups then it will be evident over time because the culture will change. 2
