In contrast to the peaceful and affectionate behaviors she observed, Goodall also found an aggressive side of chimp nature at Gombe Stream. She discovered that chimps will systematically hunt and eat smaller primates such as colobus monkeys. Goodall watched a hunting group isolate a colobus monkey high in a tree, block all possible exits, then one chimpanzee climbed up and captured and killed the colobus. The others then each took parts of the carcass, sharing with other members of the troop in response to begging behaviours. The chimps at Gombe kill and eat as much as one-third of the colobus population in the park each year. This alone was a major scientific find which challenged previous conceptions of chimp diet and behavior.
But perhaps more startling, and disturbing, was the tendency for aggression and violence within chimpanzee troops. Goodall observed dominant females deliberately killing the young of other females in the troop in order to maintain their dominance, sometimes going as far as cannibalism. She says of this revelation, "During the first ten years of the study I had believed […] that the Gombe chimpanzees were, for the most part, rather nicer than human beings. […] Then suddenly we found that chimpanzees could be brutal—that they, like us, had a darker side to their nature." These findings revolutionized contemporary knowledge of chimpanzee behaviour, and were further evidence of the social similarities between humans and chimpanzees, albeit in a much darker manner.
What has Jane Goodall done to contribute to the scientific community and the world?
She is a Primatologist who has done some of the most comprehensive study of primates and written several books on their nature and social interactions. She is famous for going out into the jungle and literally living with the apes she was studying including Gorillas and Orangutans.
How can Jane Goodall's study of Chimpanzees be applied to the study of human behaviour?
It often is, actually. Jane Goodall made many observations about the actions of chimpanzees to environmental stimuli that are often found within human populations.
For example, chimpanzees often congregate together in societies for closer relationships and "strength in numbers". Humans do the same.
Chimpanzees guard territory like humans- mothers, very much unlike other mammalian species, develop very advanced bonds with their children. People do as well.
There are a plethora of other examples you could find...
Who is a person that works with animals besides Jane Goodall?
A search : 'famous zoologists... Charles Darwin, Alfred Russel Wallace, Dian Fossey, Jane Goodall, David Attenborough and Richard Dawkins. These are people whose lives have been shaped by a desire to study and understand different aspects of animal life.

What kinds of science courses did Jane Goodall take?
Jane Goodall, (born April 3, 1934) is an English UN Messenger of Peace, primatologist, ethologist, and anthropologist. She is best-known for her study of chimpanzee social and family life in Gombe Stream National Park for 45 years, and for founding the Jane Goodall Institute.
Jane Goodall is best known for her study of chimpanzee social and family life.
Jane, a young woman in her twenties, found herself in Africa. She took a secretarial job in Nairobi, Kenya to support herself. Jane didn't like the work much, but she was fulfilling a lifelong dream. It was only a year after her arrival before she heard that anthropologist Louis Leakey and his wife Mary were digging near her in Zaire. She made a trek to meet them. Leakey had been planning a research study of the great apes. He wanted to find more commonalties between them and humans. Leakey felt there was more to the great apes than we knew; our genetic link loomed large over us. What did it mean? He took Jane on as his secretary. She organized his research notes for the Natural Museum of History (Uglow, 1989). As his latest research project came into shape, Leakey thought Jane Goodall might be good for the project. It has been said that he wanted someone without a lot of training in field of ethology or primatology. He wanted an unbiased perspective on the subject. He chose Jane to start the project on Chimpanzees on the Gombe National Reserve in Tanzania. He funded the study, and told her in might take ten or more years to complete it. Jane thought possibly three.
Jane would soon see the intrusion of cameras and video equipment at Gombe. National Geographic began chronicling her study in 1964. They put her on the cover of their magazine, and did more T.V. specials on her than any other anthropologist. Leakey wanted Jane to get her Ph.D.. in ethology. He wanted her work to be accepted within the community. He didn't think Jane would be taken seriously. Jane hated the idea. She knew getting a graduate degree would take time, time away from Africa and her chimps.
Jane received her Ph.D.. from Cambridge University in 1965.
She is one of only eight other people to earn a Ph.D.. without a Bachelors Degree. Although Jane Goodall did not have a Bachelors Degree she had to give her Doctoral dissertation on the following subjects to receive her Doctorate in Ethology
She always loved animals and wanted to go to Africa all her life. She wanted to spend her life studying animals to learn more about them. Somebody gave her a job studying chimpanzees, and that became her life work.
Achievements or Accomplishments: Jane Goodall accomplished things with chimpanzees that no scientists could have done. For example, she learned that they have things like tribes and that each tribe has a leader. They use tools like sticks to get termites out of the ground. She learned that chimpanzees nod, pat, hug and kiss. They also use sounds to communicate. They show many emotions with facial expressions, like sad and happy. Many other scientists have learned from Jane’s findings by reading her books. I think one of her greatest achievements was when she opened the foundation for orphaned chimps in countries throughout the world.
Awards or Recognitions: In 1984 she won the J. Paul Getty Wildlife Conservation Award from the San Diego Zoological Society.
In 1987 Jane won the Schweitzer Medal from the Animal Welfare Institute.
In 1988 she won the National Geographic Society’s Centennial Award.
In 1990 she won the Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences.
In 1995 Jane was awarded the National Geographic Society’s Hubbard Medal for her work with animals.
Why I admire her: I have about four reasons why I admire Jane Goodall. The first reason is she’s trying to save a race of wild chimpanzees. Once a race is extinct that is it, we can never see another chimpanzee anywhere. The second reason is because she sets a goal and achieves that goal even if she has to try over and over. She lived with the chimps in the jungle for 10 years and is the top person on chimpanzees. Even though it took along time for the chimps to trust her, she never gave up. The third reason is because she can study the chimps without hurting them. She sat back and quietly learned about, documented and photographed the chimps. And the last reason is that she likes animals so she followed her heart. I think that people might have thought she was foolish to spend 10 years of her life in the jungle learning about chimpanzees, but it all paid off because she fell in love with the chimps and they trusted her with their lives.

What is the best site to find information about Jane goodall?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jane GoodallDame Jane Goodall DBE Ph.D., (born April 3, 1934) is an English primatologist, ethologist and anthropologist, probably best-known for conducting a forty-five year study of chimpanzee social and family life, as director of the Jane Goodall Institute in Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania."
We are doing a project about Jane Goodall. Do you know of any creative ways to present it?
You could do like a simulated panel of famous people. Actually, I heard such a panel aired by closed circuit tv. It was on a topic like What It Means to Be Human, if I remember correctly. She discussed the differences between humans & apes. What an incredible experience, hearing her on such a topic.
What books did Jane Goodall wrote that earned her an award ?
Here you find lists of all awards Jane Goodall got and all books she wrote:
The Chimpanzees of Gombe: Patterns of Behavior Boston: Bellknap Press of the Harvard University Press. Published also in Japanese and Russian. > R.R. Hawkins Award for the Outstanding Technical, Scientific or Medical book of 1986, to Bellknap Press of Harvard University Press, Boston.
The Wildlife Society (USA) Award for "Outstanding Publication in Wildlife Ecology and Management".
Jane Goodall is a monkey expert. What makes her an expert on bio-fuels?
It doesn't take an expert to see that Brazil is cutting down more rainforest in order to grow more sugar cane which they use to produce ethanol.
An honest look at the issue will show that many legitimate environmental groups have serious concerns over biofuels. It doesn't mean they can't be part of the solution...but to think we can solve all of our problems with biofuels is simply naive. Trust me, the forces behind the push for biofuels are almost as powerful, and greedy, as those behind oil. (And, in many cases, it's the same people lining up to get in on the corporate welfare scam.)
As an aside, the other emerging threat to the rainforests of Brazil is the farming of soy beans...to feed the insatiable appetites of vegetarians. Every choice in life has consequences...many of them unintentional.
How Jane Goodall study about the role of chimpanzees in social and family life?
If your question is
How did Jane Goodall undertake the study of chimpanzees' social and family life?
Then the answer is she did that by doing field work, that is, by traveling to the natural habitat of chimpanzees, finding a group and living amongst them.
How do I get the pictures taken at a Jane Goodall lecture?
Have you tried her website? Or the Chimpanzoo one?
I met her about 17 years ago and still have a very vividly fond image and sense of her presence and her charisma... lucky that you got to one of her lectures... I used to volunteer at a nearby zoo that participated in her Chimpanzoo program, so we got trained on how to observe and record the behavior of captive chimps... then one of our females delivered her baby chimp and Jane named his "Frolic" - the baby chimp was conceived while the parents where in separate but adjacent cages... that baby chimp is now almost 17 years old and so is my oldest son - chimp mom and I gave birth to baby boys about 3 weeks apart...
Good luck finding the photo you seek...
Another thought - can you contact the sponsoring organization? They may have the website you lost...
Reason For Hope. Its a little out of order, but its really helpful. Also there are numerous pictures in the book which you can use and can't find on the internet. She's an interesting person, have fun with it!
she was an ethologist, primatologist and an anthropologist.
ethology is the study of animal behaviour.
anthropology is the study of humanity and as you probably know primatology is the study of primates.
How is our life different due to Jane Goodall's contributions to science?
I thought it was always interesting as she tried to explain that chimps used tools. I've seen animals use tools all my life. My sister has a macaw that uses its bell to dip water and drink from. Goodall tried to get people to understand that the chimps were further up the evolutionary chain that previously understood. She pointed out the obvious. . .that man consistently underestimates animals.
its different for everyone.
if you cant brainstorm many ideas, then look some up on the web.
and if that doesnt work, then she may not be inspirational to YOU.
like with me, shes not all the inspirational to me.
e.g: i wrote an essay last letter on someone inspirational and i chose Lady Diana cause she was truely inspirational to ME.
How was Jane Goodall's work important? I dont see how...?
She is a famous researcher and conservationist, who works with chimps in Africa.
Today Jane’s work revolves around mobilizing action on behalf of chimpanzees, who are endangered, and all wildlife species. The Jane Goodall Institute works to protect the famous chimpanzees of Gombe National Park in Tanzania, but recognizes this can’t be accomplished without a holistic approach that addresses the real needs of local people. Our conservation efforts include sustainable development programs that engage communities as true partners. These programs began around Gombe but now spread across the continent. Likewise the Roots & Shoots youth action program Jane and a group of Tanzanian students started in 1990 now spreads to more than 100 countries.
How did Jane Goodall's theories contribute to society today?
Jane Goodall works with chimpanzees. Most of what she has contributed to science has to do with the social structure of chimp communities. She does a ton of nature conservation work too. Her biggest contribution to society has probably been how instrumental she has been in introducing Anthropology to the general public.
The Jane Goodall Institute is located in Washington DC. Please see second paragraph below.
"The Jane Goodall Institute for Wildlife Research, Education and Conservation, a tax-exempt/non-profit, was founded in California in 1977 by Jane Goodall and Genevieve, Princess di San Faustino. Initially, day-to-day operation of the Institute was handled by board members and other volunteers working out of their homes. In the early 1980s JGI moved to the San Francisco offices of the California Academy of Sciences, where it functioned essentially as a USA/Africa "communication link" and as a repository for files.
To keep pace with Jane's increased public visibility, professional status, and interests, the Institute office soon moved to the area Jane always thought it should be: Washington, DC. The JGI-USA staff is fortunate to have a steady stream of volunteers and interns enthusiastically and capably assisting. "
Jane Goodall has received an honorary doctorate from/in Cambridge University?
NO. You receive a degree from a university, the degree is conferred by the university.
In general, you receive something from someone.
the ceremony to award degrees - graduation - may well take place IN the university.
What questions would you ask Jane Goodall? Suggestions needed as I am interviewing her over the weekend?
Let me second the congratulations.
The question I have is complex and controversial, but I would genuinely like to know her answer. It goes like this:
We value "Natural resources" based on their usefulness to society, human labour involved in converting them to saleable forms and fad fashion based on changing memes, i.e. "demand". How does Jane Goodall give nature value? Does nature only have value as an anthropocentric economic concept or does every form of life have inherent value? All of nature is a dance of DNA finding energy niches to exploit. Does that mean that a virus and a chimp and a human and a rain forest have the same rights to exist?
The scientific method is applicable to many undertakings in life.
Jane Goodall's tremendous volume of research would only be valuable if she adhered to the scientific method.
Check her site for great examples of her work.
You'll find a variety of research examples . . .
