chimpanzee : an anthropoid ape (Pan troglodytes) of equatorial Africa that is smaller and more arboreal than the gorilla — Webster

OneLook, Free Dictionary, Wiktionary


Chimpanzee the taxonomical genus Pan (often referred to as chimpanzees or chimps) consists of two extant species: the common chimpanzee and the bonobo. Together with humans, gorillas, and orangutans they are part of the family Hominidae (the great apes). Native to sub-Saharan Africa, common chimpanzees and bonobos are currently both found in the Congo jungle, while only the common chimpanzee is also found further north in West Africa. Both species are listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, and in 2017 the Convention on Migratory Species selected the common chimpanzee for special protection. — Wikipedia

    Humans are the only species on earth known to use language. We do this by combining sounds to form words and words to form hierarchically-structured sentences. The question of where this extraordinary capacity originates from remains to be answered. In order to retrace the evolutionary origins of human language, researchers often use a comparative approach—they compare the vocal production of other animals, in particular of primates, to those of humans. In contrast to humans, non-human […]

    A team of researchers at the Sloan Kettering Institute working with a group at the American Museum of Natural History has found evidence of a change in human DNA after diverging from other primates that has made humans more susceptible to the development of cancerous tumors. In their paper published in the journal Cell Reports, the group compares human genes to those of other primates to learn more about why humans are more prone to developing cancer.

  • How burying the dead keeps the living human

    Olena Koval found out that her husband was dead via text message. He was shot by Russian soldiers inside their home in Bucha while she was sheltering nearby, their neighbors told Human Rights Watch. In the days that followed, despite the brutal cold and her spinal disability, she made repeated attempts to recover his body but was turned back each time by the soldiers' threats.

    A team of researchers with the Lester E. Fisher Center for the Study and Conservation of Apes and the Urban Wildlife Institute, Lincoln Park Zoo, has found that two species of great apes tend to look longer at unfamiliar human faces than those of people they know. In their paper published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the group describes experiments they conducted with chimpanzees and gorillas at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago and what they learned about the interests of […]
