Time management in great apes: implications for gorilla biogeography

Abstract:

Question: Do individual time budgets constrain a species' biogeographical distribution and group size? Data studied: We used published data on gorilla behaviour and ecology as well as published climate variables to model their spatial distribution across Africa. Method: We develop a mathematical model, based on the assumption that time is a fundamental ecological constraint. This novel approach uses the relationships between climatic variables and gorilla ecology and behaviour to calculate ma...
