Female Sociality, Dispersal and Comparative Microbial Community Composition in Pan Troglodytes

Mother and infant chimp at Ngogo

This project provides insight into the structure of chimpanzee communities in Kibale National Park, home to the world's largest concentration of wild chimpanzees.

 

Evolutionary anthropologist Kevin Langergraber will conduct autosomal genotyping analyses on fecal samples from ~1000 individuals originating from multiple communities inhabiting Kibale National Park to identify community locations and composition.
