Virungas hairs or bristles; used to describe leaves that chimpanzees use for self-medication
dominance chimpanzee group at Jane Goodall's research site that was wiped out by another chimpanzee group during intergroup warfare
partnership site where bones were found that fueled the debate over the killer ape theory
inbreeding depression only truly carnivorous primate
proglottid chimpanzee(s) that prevents prey from escaping
nulliparous providing pharamceutical help to oneself during an illness
teak species that play a major ecological role within an ecosystem
ambusher reproductive section of a tapeworm
red colobus idea that human ancestors were violent, successful hunters, capable of killing large game
parous closely related species are cognitively similar, so they should think about their experiences in similar ways
kaolin prone to frequent social interaction
bonobo the simplest possible way of explaining the thoughts behind a behavior are most likely to be correct
Yanomamo having a relationship of joint interest and working toward a common goal
evolutionary parsimony swelling of the skin around the rear of some female primates; often directly connected to estrus cycle
killer ape theory calculous concentration that can be found in the stomach or intestines of some animals; traditionally believed to be an antidote for poison
morphology chimpanzee group from Jane Goodall's research site that annihilated another chimpanzee group
animalcentric chemicals that plants use to defend themselves
Vernonia incorporates its own DNA into the DNA of its host's cells for replication; typically exhibits a high rate of mutation and can be difficult to treat
nodular when former pets or other captive animals are released into the wild after rehabilitation in the hopes that they will survive and reproduce
primate chimpanzees eat the bitter pith from this plant when they are ill with intestinal worms
driver animal remains in natal area
Kahama dirt eating
osteodontokeratic culture favorite prey of chimpanzees
hispid the transmission of infectious organisms (like parasites or diseases) between animals and humans
natal a group of 5-9 chimpanzees that move along the borders of their territory, keeping unusually quiet and alert
gregarious chimpanzee(s) that kills prey animal at end of hunt
zoopharmacognosy the removal of an endangered species from one area where it is vulnerable and moved to another area within its historical range
geopahy name of mountain chain where last 700 mountain gorillas survive in the wild
reintroduction social ranking within a group
self-medication has not given birth
keystone species mineral in dirt that provides relief of diarrhea
bezoar stones human culture that lives in the Amazon; commits episodes of warfare against neighbors that are somewhat similar to warfare episodes in chimpanzees

zoonoses when an animal behaves in a certain way, you think, "What is that animal experiencing, based on its unique biology and experiences?"
border patrol locomotion pattern of walking on two legs
parturition a large group that splits apart for foraging and regroups later; bonobos and chimpanzees form this
parsimony only primate to engage in systematic hunting
secondary compounds reduced reproductive success because breeding within a small population of closely related individuals may result in an increase of deleterious genes
Frodo having given birth to one or more viable offspring
philopatry has ventro-ventral mating posture (face-to-face)
Makaspansgat the number of species within a given area
dispersal when an animal behaves in a certain way, you think "What would think or feel in that situation?"
bipedal any meat caught while hunting wild animals living in a moist tropical habitat
blocker maintains endangered species, often in zoos, to ensure that their gene pools do not disappear
Kasekela worms that form bumps on the surfaces of your intestine while they grow to maturity
biodiversity one of the most desired tropical hardwoods; logging companies often cut down huge areas of tropical forest to get a handful of these trees
