The species exhibit more ecological flexibility and a wider range of social systems than many other primates. This article summarizes our current knowledge of the natural history of baboons and highlights directions for future research. We suggest that baboons can serve as a valuable model for complex evolutionary processes, such as speciation and hybridization. The evolution of baboons has been heavily shaped by climatic changes and population expansion and fragmentation in the African savanna environment, similar to the processes that acted during human evolution. With accumulating long-term data, and new data from previously understudied species, baboons are ideally suited for investigating the links between sociality, health, longevity and reproductive success. To achieve these aims, we propose a closer integration of studies at the proximate level, including functional genomics, with behavioral and ecological studies.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:creator>Beehner, Jacinta C.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Bergman, Thore J.</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Higham, James P.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Alberts, Susan C.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Elton, Sarah</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Fischer, Julia</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2019</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Fischer, Julia</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bergman, Thore J.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Beehner, Jacinta C.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Collins, Anthony</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/47520/1/Fischer_2-1e7glji02h1v23.pdf"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Kopp, Gisela H.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Alberts, Susan C.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Higham, James P.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Collins, Anthony</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/47520"/> <dc:creator>Kopp, Gisela H.</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dc:contributor>Carter, Alecia J.</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Barrett, Louise</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Carter, Alecia J.</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-11-15T14:30:07Z</dc:date> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/47520/1/Fischer_2-1e7glji02h1v23.pdf"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43615"/> <dc:contributor>Elton, Sarah</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Barrett, Louise</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
