Abstract

This chapter describes a series of field experiments aimed at investigating aspects of emergence of cultural traditions in wild chimpanzee communities. Long-term research at a number of sites in Africa has revealed that each community of chimpanzees has developed its unique set of cultural traditions (Boesch and Boesch-Achermann 2000; Goodall 1986; McGrew 1992; Nishida 1990; Whiten et al. 1999). The evidence poses an intriguing question: How did these unique cultures come into existence?.
