The impact of the social environment suggests that additionally, mangabeys
and chimpanzees can inhibit a preferred response (eg grooming a high-ranking group mate) if their action would not lead to success (because this individual's friend is present), a skill often considered too difficult for non-human animals.

Isolation of a T-lymphotropic retrovirus from naturally infected sooty mangabey
monkeys (Cercocebus atys).
This 'return to basics' includes the essential investigation into why some non-human primates, such as the sooty mangabey
, become infected with SIV but do not develop disease, despite high levels of replicating SIV .
Julie Anderson and Guy Grieve spend five weeks in a treehouse above Gabon's rainforest floor, aiming to study mangabey
monkeys in their natural habitat.
They are based in Gabon in Africa, looking for the rare red-capped mangabey
monkey, and are living in a specially-constructed high hide to spot the beasts.
Jungle The prospect of living in a rainforest treehouse for five weeks to study elusive red-capped mangabey
monkeys for Tales From The Treetops seemed easy by comparison.
