In intact, mosaic ecosystems, chimpanzees are sympatric with a wide range of other mammals, which may be predators, prey, or competitors. We delve beyond the nominal data of species lists to interval-level data on 35 medium-bodied and large-bodied mammals encountered at a hot, dry, and open field site in far West Africa. Frequency of encounter, habitat where found, and number of individuals encountered are analysed for species for which enough data were accumulated. Further, we compare findings… 
Chimpanzees and their mammalian sympatriates in the Issa Valley, Tanzania
Chimpanzees have been studied for nearly 300 combined years across Africa, but aside from their roles as predators or prey, remarkably little is known about the diverse species with whom they share
Informing Protection Efforts for Critically Endangered Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes verus) and Sympatric Mammals amidst Rapid Growth of Extractive Industries in Senegal
TLDR
Biodiversity assessments will better elucidate the chimpanzee extinction risk here and yield baselines for monitoring, and primatologists are encouraged to collaborate with mining stakeholders to ensure that sustainability programming includes contributions from experts in savannah chimpanzee behavior and ecology.
Ethology and Ecology of the Patas Monkey ( Erythrocebus patas ) at Mt . Assirik , Senegal
We report ecological and ethological data collected opportunistically and intermittently on unhabituated patas monkeys at Mt. Assirik, Senegal, over 44 months. Although unsystematic and preliminary,
Snakes as hazards: modelling risk by chasing chimpanzees
TLDR
The hypothesis that snakes encountered by primatologists seeking, tracking, and observing wild chimpanzees are hazards to primates seems to be supported, if frequency of encounter reflects selective risk of morbidity or mortality.
Landscapes of the apes: modelling landscape use of chimpanzees and early hominins across an environmental gradient.
As primate habitat is declining rapidly, studying the flexibility of primates to adapt to changing landscapes is important. Landscape-scale studies of primate habitat use are, however, scant.
Differences between chimpanzee and baboon gastrointestinal parasite communities
TLDR
There are significant differences between these two hosts with respect to their parasite communities, despite being closely related, and Papio papio harboured more parasites per host.
Social Learning and Culture in Child and Chimpanzee.

TLDR
Field and experimental studies, particularly those in which direct chimpanzee-child comparisons have been made, delineate a growing set of commonalities between the phenomena of social learning and culture in the lives of chimpanzees and humans.
Is genetic drift to blame for testicular dysgenesis syndrome in Semliki chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii)?
TLDR
It is tested whether genetic drift may be the culprit, as a genetic cause has been suspected to account for testicular dysgenesis syndrome among other wildlife.

Chimpanzees as fauna: comparisons of sympatric large mammals across long‐term study sites
TLDR
The extent of chimpanzee ecological diversity is elucidated by scrutinizing (recently) sympatric mammalian fauna at established study sites and these living faunal assemblages have implications for paleo‐ecological reconstructions of ancestral habitats.
Chimpanzees in a hot, dry and open habitat: Mt. Assirik, Senegal, West Africa
The habitat of the chimpanzees of Mt. Assirik, in the Parc National du Niokolo-Koba, Senegal, is described in terms of rainfall, temperature and vegetation. The results are compared with those
Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes verus) Behavioral Responses to Stresses Associated With Living in a Savanna-Mosaic Environment: Implications for Hominin Adaptations to Open Habitats
Anthropologists have long been interested in the behavioral ecology of nonhuman primates living in savannas given what we know of early hominin environments. As expected, chimpanzees in the Fongoli
Responses of Wild Chimpanzees to Potential Predators
TLDR
The responses of wild chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes verus) to the presence of potential predators at Mt. Assirik, in the Parc National du Niokolo Koba, Senegal is reported.
Wide-ranging chimpanzees at Mt. Assirik, Senegal
A 4-year study of the ecology and ethology of wild chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes verus)was carried out in far western Africa. Contacts with chimpanzees and the locations of their nests were noted to
Distribution and Abundance of Diurnal Mammals, Especially Monkeys, at Kasoje Mahale Mountains, Tanzania
TLDR
Estimation of the distribution and abundance of medium- and large-sized diurnal mammals in the Kasoje area of the Mahale Mountains National Park, western Tanzania between 1995 and 1996 found that yellow baboons and warthogs have apparently expanded their ranges while vervet monkeys seem to have contracted theirs.

Patterns of Range Use by the Green Monkey, Cercopithecus sabaeus, at Mt. Assirik, Senegal
TLDR
Range use is shown to have been determined by the availability and distribution of important species of fruit and flowers, water in the late dry season, habitat structure, sleeping sites, and by the presence of neighbouring groups competing for limited resources.
Chimpanzee interactions with nonhuman species in an anthropogenic habitat
TLDR
It is anticipated that chimpanzee interactions with sympatric species inhabiting humanised habitats will change over time to include more domesticated species, and conservation management strategies should anticipate behavioural flexibility in response to changing landscapes.
Genotyping aids field study of unhabituated wild chimpanzees
TLDR
This premise is tested on an unhabituated wild population of western chimpanzees at Mont Assirik, Senegal, and genotyping yielded information on kinship, group size, party size and composition, sex ratio, and ranging.
