Summary[edit]

Description
Afrikaans: 'n Volwasse, wilde sjimpansee-wyfie met haar een jaar oue suigeling wat vreet aan Besemtrosvye in Kibale Nasionale Park, Oeganda. Daar is opgemerk hoe hy ook proe aan die vrugvlees van rooi (d.i. baie ryp) vye. Die foto is tydens my na-doktorale genootskap by Harvard Universiteit geneem, toe ek die verwantskap tussen eksklusiewe mededinging en voedingswaarde van wilde vrugte bestudeer het. Ek het die heel eerste gedetailleerde studie oor sjimpansees se voedings-ekologie gedoen met beskrywings van tot dusver onbekende gedrag. My waarnemings is oorwegend direk in die baldakyn gemaak met die wilde sjimpansees rondom my. Nodeloos om te sê dat dit die projek van my lewe was. Foto 25 m bo grondvlak geneem.
English: “Adult female-infant wild chimpanzees feeding on Ficus sur fruits in Kibale National Park, Uganda. The infant was one-year old, and he was still breast feeding. However, he has been seen to taste the flesh of red (very ripe) fruits. The picture was taken during my postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University, during which I studied the relationship between contest competition and the nutritional quality of wild fruits. I made the very first detailed study on chimpanzees’ nutritional ecology with descriptions of behaviors never seen before. Most of my observations were collected directly in the canopy with wild chimpanzees all around. Needless to say that this was the project of my life. Picture taken at 25 m above the ground.”
