dc.description.abstract Four troops of chacma baboons Papio ursinus, comprising approximately 150 individuals, have home-ranges largely in the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. One hundred and twenty-one days of observation was made of one of these troops, 0 troop, between March 1975 and February 1976. 0 troop occupies a home-range of roughly 4000 ha, using nine different sleeping cliffs. Troop members were observed most frequently throughout the year in a 45 ha core area containing one sleeping cliff. The troop showed no clear habitat preferences, but occupied alien Acacia thickets and Upland Mixed Fynbos more frequently than expected from the spatial distribution of these vegetation types in the home-range. Frequency of baboon occupation for each of five vegetation types varied seasonally, and appeared to be a reflection of the availability of plant food. en_ZA
