Tools to study chimpanzee conservation

Biological/Genetic Diversity Tools
Biological diversity is an essential issue concerning chimp conservation as chimps must maintain certain population levels in order to remain viable. These tools will help you ask and answer questions concerning the biological aspect of chimp conservation.

Spatial/Geographical Tools
The locations of chimpanzee groups as well as the the conditions and inhabitants of the surrounding areas provide valuable information necessary for conservation. Additionally, in order to expand your understanding of genetic diversity, you must examine the spatial distribution (and possible isolated gene pools) of chimpanzees in the wild.

Computational Modeling and Simulation Tools
These tools allow investigation of various conservation management techniques and their outcomes. Knowledge acquired through use of these tools can be applied to developing conservation plans for chimpanzees.

Economic Anaylsis Tools
Chimp conservation must be studied from an economic perspective so that reasonable conservation solutions can be made. These tools will enable you to analyze the economic value of various items related to chimp conservation.

Sociological Tools
In order for the conservation of chimpanzees to be sucessful, an understanding of their social/cultural behaviors is needed. These tools can be used to explore the behaviors of chimps in specific areas.
