Nonhuman Primate Behavior

Dr. Jones

Description of Research:

Dr. Jones is interested in the development of social behaviors in chimpanzees. Observing animals in their natural environment allows Dr. Jones to study behaviors that affect chimpanzee health and survival in the wild. This kind of study is important to understanding the origins and causes of different behaviors. Understanding chimpanzee behaviors may provide information about human behaviors.

A group of chimpanzees interacts with one another.
