The Study of Captive Baboon Behavior

  • Linda Brent
Part of the Developments in Primatology: Progress and Prospects book series (DIPR)

Baboons (Papio hamadryas sp.) are plentiful, adaptable primates that have been well studied in the wild, beginning in the 1960s (Hall, 1960, 1962; Washburn and DeVore, 1961; Kummer and Kurt, 1963; DeVore and Hall, 1965; Hall and DeVore, 1965). Long-term research sites have focused on hamadryas baboons in Ethiopia (Kummer, 1968, 1990); the hamadryas/olive baboon hybrid zone in the Awash region of Ethiopia (Phillips-Conroy and Jolly, 1986; Phillips-Conroy et al., 1991); yellow baboons in Amboseli, Kenya (Altmann and Altmann, 1970; Altmann, 1980, 1998), and Mikumi National Park, Tanzania (Wasser and Starling, 1986; Rhine et al., 2000); olive baboons at Gilgil, Kenya (Strum, 1987), and Gombe National Park, Tanzania (Packer, 1978; Ransom, 1981; Collins, 1986); and chacma baboons at the Drakensberg Mountains (Henzi and Lycett, 1995; Henzi et al., 2000). Research traditionally focused on social organization, social behavior, and socioecology. Years of demographic and behavioral information coupled with genetic analyses and paternity ascertainment has continued to expand our knowledge of wild baboon behavior, highlighted by studies on paternal care (Buchan et al., 2003), female sociality and infant survival (Silk et al., 2003), and classification of social relationships (Bergman et al., 2003).
