CARTA: The Role of Hunting in Anthropogeny: Ian Gilby - Pan the Hunter: Ecological Explanations for Chimpanzee Predation

5/8/2018; 19 minutes

Hunting is considered a key human adaptation and is thought to have influenced our anatomy, physiology and behavior over time. This symposium explores the evidence pertaining to the origins of hominin hunting. Ian Gilby, Arizona State University, argues that the considerable variation in predation frequency within and between chimpanzee social groups is driven by the energetic costs and physical risks that hunting entails.
