Title: Annals of the Cape Provincial Museums. Volume 9. Part 2. The Social Organisation and Behaviour of Dolphins (Tursiops Aduncus) and Baboons (Papio Ursinus): Some Comparisons and Assessments.
Description: Cape Provincial Museums, Albany Museum, Grahamstown. Natural History. Volume. 9 Part 2 . 31st October 1972. Printed wraps, Stapled, p.11-p.49, illustrated. 184mm wide x 240mm high. New unread copy. The ecological and behavioural study of free-ranging monkeys and apes formed one of the most rapidly expanding fields of biological research in the last decade. Of no less importance for comparative psychobiology was the increase in systematic studies of the smaller cetaceans, the group of large-brained marine mammals including dolphins and pilot whales. It has been stated that there are striking similarities in the social behaviour of some of the higher primates and dolphins - two forms occupying very different environments and differing markedly in anatomical and morphological characteristics. This paper compares the qualitative behaviours under the headings of social dominance, sexual behaviour, socialisation, and response to the environment.
