Chimpanzees and humans share overlapping territories


Chimpanzees and humans “overlap” in their use of forests and even villages, new research shows.

Chimpanzees used areas away from villages and agriculture more intensively, but entered land used by humans to get fruit – especially when wild fruits were scarce. MORE
