The findings, published in Thursday’s edition of the journal Nature, indicate thatfemales from two pre-human species seemed to move out of theirbirth homes and journey elsewhere, probably to prevent inbreeding,researchers said. Chimpanzees, our closest living primate relative,also have females that travel to mate and raise families.
That is in contrast to lower primates and most mammals where itis the males that have the wanderlust.
