dc.description.abstractFirst paragraph: There are a number of reports in the literature of primates feeding on the bark of trees, but bark has only occasionally been considered as a major food to be studied in its own right (e.g., Waser, 1977; Beeson, 1987; Norris, 1988). All the great apes feed on bark at certain times, and clearly have preferences as to which species they choose (e.g., Schaller, 1963; Jones & Sabater Pi. 1971; Casimir, 1975: Nishida, 1976; Goodall, 1977; Rodman, 1977; Sabater Pi, 1977, 1979). Evidence has been presented that bark feeding by chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) and orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus) is a seasonal phenomenon related to scarcity of preferred fruits (Nishida, 1976; Rodman, 1977), and similar conclusions have been drawn from studies of blue monkeys (Cercopithecus mitis) living near plantations of exotic pines (Beeson, 1987; Maganga & Wright, 1992). Bark feeding is also well known in other mammals where, again, it often occurs seasonally (e.g., elephants, Wing & Buss, 1970; grey squirrels, Kenward & Parish, 1986).en_UK
