I've added these references+ to WUaS's
Bonobos chimpanzee -

in a new "Culture and Chimpanzee" section ...
thanks for this interesting post on bonobos (gosh, authorship rules are so strict in medicine - how did these apes qualify?). very interesting read. you may enjoy "The Ape House", which i recently finished - and that features bonobos as well. ...
I think Sue Savage-Rumbaugh communicated with these Bonobos about their authorship, and they're not MDs, so not too worry.
I'll look at "The Ape House" and look to add it to WUaS's Primatology page -
look forward to catching up.
