Understanding the nature of phenotypic traits that enables Chacma baboons to become such a successful species that colonized extremely variable ecological niches is a key question in the study of their history and their future evolution facing climate changes. In this context, the aim of this research project will be to study phenotypic variations of Chacma baboons through the estimation and comparison of different phenological behaviour and morphological traits and propose a prediction of these variations by 2050. Different troops present in different biomes (savannah, nama-karoo, succulent karoo, fynbos, grassland) will be characterised and we will investigate if some traits could be indicators of adaptative responses to these different environments.
