Chimpanzees inhabit a wide variety of habitats in sub-Saharan Africa, from rain forest to savanna. Their behaviour, whether in subsistence or sociality, varies greatly too. To understand this diversity requires careful comparative study, seeking data on differences and similarities across populations. I have pursued these aims from Senegal to Tanzania, and published books and articles accordingly. However, this talk describes and illustrates what lies behind the science, what never appears in journals, about what the research entails.
