In this week, learners will be able to identify the types of competitive and friendly behavior that chimpanzees demonstrate between and within groups.

Additionally, by the end of this week learners will be able to explain why there can be conflict between males and females over mating and why inbreeding is worse for females than males.

A very interesting overview of chimpanzee behavior, ecology, and preservation. This course makes you want to go to Africa and spend at least some time working with chimpanzee studies.
