• species
  • It is now recognized as a full species because it is morphologically and genetically distinctive as the five other baboon species (Mittermeier et al . (iucnredlist.org)
  • This species is listed under Appendix II of CITES (as Papio cyanocephalus ). (iucnredlist.org)
  • 7. It is speculated that the need for vitamin B 12 underlies baboon predatory behavior, and perhaps that of other primate species as well. (brillonline.com)
  • In order to stop the declining population of yellow baboons, they have been listed in Annex II to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). (wroclaw.pl)
  • Research at the Amboseli Baboon Project centers on processes at the individual, group, and population levels, and in recent years has also included other aspects of baboon biology, such as genetics, hormones, nutrition, hybridization, parasitology, and relations with other species.

  • interactions
  • In wild savannah baboons, social affiliations are shown to augment fitness by increasing tolerance from more dominant group members and increasing the chance of obtaining aid from conspecifics during instances of within-group contest interactions. (wikipedia.org)
  • levels
  • Dani's project on yellow baboons is to see if progesterone levels prior to conception and during pregnancy correlate with whether a pregnancy is successful or results in spontaneous abortion. (princeton.edu)
  • Baboons with lower tick loads show decreased occurrence of such infections and display signs of greater health status, evidenced by higher hematocrit (packed red cell volume) levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • data
  • A lognormal model however provided a good fit to the monthly rate of predation data suggesting that the rate of predation by Amboseli baboons was affected by several factors that acted multiplicatively with respect to each other and were themselves related to rainfall or dryness.

  • research
  • Now enrolled as a Ph.D. student, she plans to focus her graduate research on using GIS/GPS technology to examine spatial and temporal distribution patterns of baboons. (princeton.edu)
  • For example, research on baboons showed that after 14 days of gradual increase, swellings peaked for 2 days before reducing. (wikipedia.org)
