Shows the many facets of baboon (Papio) ecology and social behavior. Filmed in their natural environment of the Nairobi National Park, this piece traces the development of baboons from infancy through juvenile to adult behavior patterns. The program explores the troop, emphasizing factors that foster social cohesion among the various ages and between the sexes. It also examines the relationship between baboons and other species such as the impala and the lion. Behaviors shown include food preparation, feeding by a handicapped individual, and use of water holes and sleeping trees. Social behaviors include infant play, carrying infants (dorsal and ventral), juvenile play (including play fighting), presenting and grooming. Sexual behaviors include presenting and consort pairs. Behaviors associated with dominance include supplanting, yawning, aggression (chase, threat), redirected aggression and coalition formation. Various food sources for this baboon troop are shown, including grass and parts of the acacia tree
Baboon social organization( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the general social organization of the group using both figures and footage. The video presents what it terms a "model troop" to illustrate such concepts as central and peripheral males, changes in female rank related to reproductive condition, the dominance hierarchy, and relationships among juvenile peers. Specific behaviors shown include play within peer groups, group members attracted to a newborn infant, maternal rejection of an older infant, a juvenile recruiting support in an aggressive situation, aggressive threats and chases, and grooming. This is a good introduction to concepts of primate social organization illustrated through footage of a single species and is appropriate to introductory courses, including pre-college level
