Project Title: 
Ward, Dr. Carol, U. of Missouri, Columbia, MO; and Manthi, Dr. Fredrick, National Museums of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya - To aid collaborative research on 'The Emergence of Australopithecus: Renewed Field Investigations at Kanapoi, Kenya'

Preliminary abstract: We propose renewed fieldwork at the earliest Australopithecus site of Kanapoi, Kenya. Until recently, our understanding of Australopithecus origins was based on A. afarensis. However, the dramatically different morphology of earlier hominins, and differences between A. anamensis and A. afarensis, suggests that not all of the adaptations seen in A. afarensis evolved together at the origins of the genus.

Preliminary abstract: Chimpanzee males are well known for their aggressive behaviors and in all study communities, males are consistently more aggressive than females. Differences also exist between individuals within each sex in this species but there is little known about what shapes these differences. This project will examine the extent to which sex and individual differences in aggressive behaviors in wild chimpanzees are the result of early life experiences or innate predispositions.
