26: the sequence of food sharing episodes recorded by Giza Teleki in the Gombe reserve during a day-long consumption of a captured colobus monkey (part one)

My Tinderbox version of a diagram from Feast: Why Humans Share Food, by Martin Jones, page 29.


The Gombe Reserve, as you may know, is the famous research centre founded by Jane Goodall.


The data was collected by Giza Teleki.


The original diagram, which is not especially clear at times, provides a fascinating case study in the function and presentation of diagrams. I expect to revisit this diagram for more work later.


Since the author of the book lives in the same city as me, I will try to arrange a conversation with him at some point later this summer.


I plan to upload the map and its derivatives to Emberlight later this month.
