    The ecology and behavior of savannah baboons (P. papio, P. anubis, P. cynocephalus, and P. ursinus) has been the subject of many studies over the past six decades. These baboons live in woodland savannahs, grasslands, acacia scrubs, and other open areas, but also in gallery forests and some rainforest environments.   The chacma baboon (Papio ursinus), also known as the Cape baboon, is, like all other baboons, from the Old World monkey family. It is one of the largest of all monkeys. Located primarily in southern Africa, the chacma baboon has a wide variety of social behaviors, including a dominance hierarchy, collective foraging, adoption of young by females, and friendship pairings.

    Keywords: Consortship, estrous cycle, oxytocin, chacma baboons, Papio hamadryas ursinus, socio-sexual behavior, non-invasive hormone sampling Introduction Oxytocin (OT) is an evolutionarily conserved neuro-hypophysial hormone that is released into the brain and blood stream in response to social stimuli in a range of mammalian species. Instead, most field studies of baboons suggest that troops occupy overlapping undefended home ranges.

Baboons are comparable in size and weight to australopithecines like Paranthropus robustus and Australopithecus africanus and their human-like behaviour has long been recognised.5, This study reports daily activity pattern, home range size, daily travel distances and feeding behaviour for a troop of chacma baboons (Papio hamadryas ursinus) inhabiting a pine plantation in.

Here we present an introduction into how predation risk might be estimated in terrestrial environments, and we employ this model to explore patterns of habitat use in chacma baboons.

The results suggest that baboons respond behaviorally to habitat-specific levels of predation risk, even in a low predatordensity environment. The current studies were conducted in order to investigate the phenomenon of copulatory vocalizations and their relationship to orgasm in women.

Data were collected from 71 sexually active heterosexual women (M age = years ±) recruited from the local community through opportunity sampling. The studies revealed that orgasm was most frequently reported by women. Chacma baboons (Papio ursinus) fight. Infanticide in baboons is driven by a mating structure built on male competition.

At present, we work with three troops of chacma baboons (Papio ursinus) comprising over individuals in total. Each baboon is individually recognisable, of known age, and of known relatedness to other individuals in the population.

This paper describes the study of collective decision-making at the time of departure (i.e. initiation) for movements of two groups of wild chacma baboons (Papio ursinus). One group was composed of 11 individuals, whilst the other consisted of about individuals.

The aim is to understand the evolution of male infanticide and female.

So it is pretty easy to spot where a troop of chacmas were once foraging. Chacma baboons have cheek pouches the size of their stomachs to store food. In water-scarce areas, such as Namibia, chacmas can survive up to 20 days without water by eating foods with high water content.Hartley H Chacma baboon (Papio hamadryas ursinus for a compelling book bound to entertain and educate all readers.
