Isabel Behncke Izquierdo is a Chilean primatologist who studies the social behaviour, especially play, of bonobos (pan paniscus) the other species, together with Chimpanzee, inside the genus Pan. In 2011 she was a TED Fellow and gave a talk "Evolution's gift of play, from bonobo apes to humans".
In October 2013 she appeared on BBC Radio 4's The Museum of Curiosity. Her hypothetical donation to this fictional museum was "a laughing tree", a tree in which Bonobos congregated and laughed such that the tree itself seemed to laugh.
