    About This Project

    Gorillas, like people, are incredibly social animals. I am studying how a clumped and social-foraging resource influences gorilla relationships. I hypothesize that a clumped resource (an artificial termite mound) will affect space and social behavior of all male bachelor groups and one-male multi-female family groups differently. In this study we will measure spatial positions and behavioral interactions of the gorillas to test how the artificial termite mound influences these groups.
