In the news

That makes them very difficult to study. Just now chimpanzee researchers have been out there long enough to really document the whole lifespans of chimpanzees. In particular one of the things we’re interested in in evolutionary biology is what determines which individuals are reproductively successful. Things like that are important stuff that’s coming up now and in the future.
