Social structure sources[edit]

First I found: www.janegoodall.ca/about-chimp-behaviour-social-organization.php -hugeTim (talk) 04:18, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

I would suggest rather to use some of the siezeable body of published literature on the topic - some of it by Goodall, others by Wrangham, and others again by several teams of Japanese researchers. It is one of the most studied fields of primatology.·maunus · snunɐɯ· 07:51, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Misleading! Either make this a "chimp & bonobo" page, or disentangle[edit]

It's a big mess here. Either this is supposed to be a "genus Pan", page, or a "chimp" page. If a mix, then think it through and use "main" or "further" hatnotes to connect paragraphs on this page with paras on the "bonobo" page.

You have created a redirect for the genus Pan to this page (actually only for "Pan (genus)" but not also for "genus Pan" - ?!!), which is utterly misleading, since half of the genus, namely the species "bonnobo", has its own page. If one takes the time to go through the text, there is an explanation for that, but if all one wants is, say, to check out the components of the Hominini tribe, it's less than user-friendly. I'll try to fix the two leads accordingly, but I don't know how to add redirects, so who wants to do it? As the easiest compromise, "Pan (genus)" and "genus Pan" should both get a redirect, since there is no page by that name. Thanks. ArmindenArminden (talk) 15:58, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

The confusion goes on. I'll repeat this until smb. starts discussing it.Arminden (talk) 22:56, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
