Unfortunately, the October 1994 Scientific American article than mentions
Bonobo chimps (on page 100) is mostly interested in their intellectual
capacity (language, tool use, cortex size, etc.). I was hoping to see
something on their genetic similarities to humans (more or less human-like
than other chimps?), or at least more of their mating habits :-).
