Chimpanzee Behaviour: Recent Understandings from Captivity and the Forest brings diverse topics together in one volume. It presents new data from chimpanzee hunting behaviour and tool use in the forest. It covers gestural communication in free-living populations and sign language communication in captive individuals. It presents research in chimpanzee artwork including numerous images. Finally it provides a framework for care in captivity with a humane approach.
