Comparative Avian Cognition : Physical and Social Problem Solving in Corvids and Parrots

The results of these studies suggest that both parrots and corvids are adept at attending to and learning about different types of physical information which can aid problem solving, but do not intentionally seek this information or use it to benefit others.

Fossil apes and human evolution

The morphology of fossil apes was varied and it is likely that the last shared ape ancestor had its own set of traits, different from those of modern humans and modern apes, both of which have been undergoing separate suites of selection pressures.

Development of tool-use behavior in a social context

Overall, infants and juveniles sustain a high level of interest in nuts and stones long before they can efficiently crack, and it is suggested that this interest is maintained with the help of tradition.

The chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) is well-known in both nature and captivity as an impressive maker and user of tools, but recently the New Caledonian crow (Corvus moneduloides) has been championed as

Building Babies

This work focuses on the ontogeny of investigating primate ontogenY, which involves identifying proximate and ultimate causation in the development of primate sex-typed social behavior and life history frameworks for understanding primate positional patterns.

The Method of Local Restriction: in search of potential great ape culture‐dependent forms

The results show that overall, ape cultures do not rely heavily on copying, as most ape behaviours appear across sites and/or species, rendering them unlikely to be culture-dependent forms resulting from cumulative cultural evolution.

Raw material procurement for termite fishing tools by wild chimpanzees in the Issa valley, Western Tanzania.

The fact that Issa chimpanzees select specific plant species and travel some distance to source them suggests some degree of selectivity and, potentially, forward planning in the chimpanzees of Issa valley, western Tanzania.

It is difficult to estimate the number of chimpanzees in the reserve, but probably between 60 and 100 animals occupy the area during at least part of the year.
