Historical climatic events and riverine barriers influence the distribution of primates the river congo exerts the most significant influence on primate distribution in equatorial africa, but the extent to which the inner basin of the congo provided.
Introduction published cytogenetic comparisons clearly show size differences among the y chromosomes of our nearest relatives, the chimpanzee (pan troglodytes) and the bonobo (pan paniscus) , the chimpanzee y chromosome is the smallest of the complement and is almost metacentric in morphology, while the bonobo y is submetacentric, and similar in size to the g-group chromosomes of this species.
