32 As we will see, this rotational ability underwrites the great apes’ skill at producing ﬁne-grained and subtly varied gestures rather than only broad, sweeping ones. Great ape brains are larger than those of other nonhuman primates. As noted by the biological anthropologist Kathleen Gibson,33 great ape brains are, on average, about twice the size of baboon brains. Baboon brains are themselves about twice as large as the brains of any other monkey. 35 For example, from brain size alone, one can predict the sizes of major neural processing areas and neuronal density of various primates.
In mammals generally, one or both sexes transfers out of the natal group at puberty. This dispersal at reproductive age presumably allows individuals to avoid inbreeding and/or to gain better access to resources. Nonhuman primates are no exception, and a major goal in assessing a population’s social organization is to ﬁgure out which sex or sexes disperse (and, of course, why). Nonprimatologists, familiar with Goodall’s writings about adult mother-daughter pairs (perhaps Flo and Fiﬁ, or Passion and Pom), are often startled to learn that female chimpanzees in most popula- social communication as dance 27 tions routinely transfer, alone, out of their natal community at puberty.
