John C. Mitani is the James N. Spuhler Collegiate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Michigan. During the past 15 years, he has been engaged in a long-term study of the behavior of chimpanzees living in an unusually large community at Ngogo, Kibale National Park, Uganda. His research there focuses on male chimpanzee social behavior and cooperation. Over the past 30 years, he has conducted field work on all five of the living apes, including gibbons and orangutans in Indonesia, gorillas in Rwanda, bonobos in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and chimpanzees in Tanzania and Uganda.
