'Dominguez-Rodrigo M, Serrallonga J, Medina V, 1998: Food Availability and Social Stress in Captive Baboons: Referential Data for Early Hominid Food Transport at Sites. Anthropologie (Brno) 36, 3: 225-230'.
Social stress due to food availability has been studied in captive baboons, as a common behavioral pattern exhibited by several primate species. The aim of the study is to draw information about food transport and availability, and the effects of these factors on social behavior and residue accumulations. This information can be applied to early African archaeological sites if hominids still behaved as the rest of primates. The conclusion is that redundant carcass transport to sites is better understood if food extracted from them was high yielding rather than the low yielding resources from carcasses scavenged from other carnivores' kills.
