Differential seed handling by two African primates affects seed fate and establishment of large-seeded trees

The fate of 450 medical-research chimps owned or supported by U.S. government will soon be decided. Most will likely be sent to sanctuaries, but 50 may be kept in captivity & used for medical experiments in future. A decision to keep them for research will be controversial. Profound questions remain over how to balance human benefits against the costs. It’s debatable whether the experiments can ever be done in a way that treats chimps with the empathy due to humanity’s closest living…
