Baboon Research Vocalizations People Publications


Dorothy Cheney & Robert Seyfarth 'Lab'

Our research focuses on the behavior, communication, and cognition of animals living under natural conditions. Most of the research conducted by the graduate students and post-docs in our group is conducted on non-human primates, although some have also worked on other, non-primate mammals.

From 1992 to 2008, our research focused primarily on free-ranging baboons in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. Although we were forced to terminate this project in 2008, we continue to analyze results from this project (see link to Publications).
