In Uganda's Kibale National Park, the trees are dripping with monkeys. The
park has one of the highest concentrations of primates on the planet. And
primatologist Colin Chapman has spent a decade here getting to know them. From
the leaf-eating red colobus monkey, to the once desperately endangered
black-and-white colubus, to chimpanzees, our closest relations in the animal
world--all contribute to the health of the forest, and all have come under
Chapman's careful scrutiny. Chapman's simple questions (how many primates live
here? in what size groups?) have led to some complex answers. What they reveal
about monkey and chimp behaviour can help us save the forests where they
live--and better understand our own societies.
