'Čaljan VG, Meišvili NV, Vančatová MA, 1987: Sexual Behaviour of Hamadryas Baboons. Anthropologie (Brno) 25, 2: 183-187'.
Various aspects of sexual behaviour and reproductive parameters of hamadryas baboons (Papio hamadryas) reared in Sukhumi Primate Research Center are presented. Three groups living under different ecological conditions (free ranging group, open-air enclosure living group and cage reared group) have been examined. The main attention of the study is turned to the population dynamics and copulatory behaviour. The specifity of sexual behaviour of hamadryas baboons has been shown and the differences among Papio hamadryas and other Papio species as well as macaques are stressed. Marked differences in sexual behaviour and reproductive parameters exist between captive and free ranging hamadryas baboons, e.g. earlier sexual maturation in captive groups, caused very probably by the different ecological parameters typical for individual types of environment.
