Great ape genetic diversity and population history
Most great ape genetic variation remains uncharacterized; however, its study is critical for understanding population history, recombination, selection and susceptibility to disease. Here we sequenceExpand

  • 1 October 1987
Sex differences in dispersal distance are widespread in birds and mammals, but the predominantly dispersing sex differs consistently between the classes. There has been persistent debate over theExpand

Why Lions Form Groups: Food is Not Enough
Extensive observations of foraging female lions reveal that two group sizes maximize foraging success during the season of prey scarcity: one female and five or six females. Foraging success does notExpand

A molecular genetic analysis of kinship and cooperation in African lions
AFRICAN lions live in complex social groups and show extensive cooperative behaviour1–10. Here we describe a new application of DNA fingerprinting that unequivocally demonstrates the kinshipExpand

The Evolution of Sex-Biased Dispersal in Lions
Most female lions remain in their natal pride for their entire lives, but about a third emigrate before they reach four yrs of age. Most emigrating females leave either when they are evicted by anExpand

Increased mortality and AIDS-like immunopathology in wild chimpanzees infected with SIVcpz
African primates are naturally infected with over 40 different simian immunodeficiency viruses (SIVs), two of which have crossed the species barrier and generated human immunodeficiency virus types 1Expand

Female competition and male territorial behaviour influence female chimpanzees' ranging patterns
Current models of chimpanzee social structure differ in the extent to which females range with the males and are loyal to a particular social group. We tested these models by analysing 18 years ofExpand

Abstract Juvenile chimpanzees at Gombe National Park associated almost constantly with their mothers for several years after they were weaned from suckling. Then this association declined abruptly inExpand

Reproductive and genetic consequences of founding isolated lion populations
Species survival is critically dependent on reproductive performance, a complex physiological process under rigorous genetic control. Classical studies of inbreeding in laboratory animals andExpand
