  • This study explored some aspects of chimpanzee social behaviour using mitochondrial DNA sequence data as an index of matrilineal relatedness. [...] Key Method Several behavioural measures of individual social preference were examined for chimpanzees from Kanyawara community in Uganda's Kibale Forest. None of the four pairs of strongly affiliative males in this community could have been maternal brothers, since no pair shared the same mitochondrial DNA sequence.Expand Abstract
