    We investigated the existence of a social dominance hierarchy in the captive group of six adult bonobos at the Planckendael Zoo.

    The relationship between vegetation and ranging patterns of wild bonobos at Wamba, Democratic Republic of the Congo, was examined. Via Landsat data, we distinguished three types of vegetation—dry forest, swamp forest, and disturbed forest—at Wamba. The home ranges of the study...
