  1. Numbers of unique individuals genotyped (n) and population sizes (N) are shown with 95% confidence intervals (CI) for each putative chimpanzee community in the study area. The numbers of groups of chimpanzees with different probabilities of detection included in the estimate model appear in parentheses following the abundance estimate. Monitoring estimates refer to the number of chimpanzees reported during the study period for communities monitored for research or conservation (provided via pers. comm. as follows: Bulindi, Matthew McLennan; Kasokwa, Janette Wallis; Kasongoire, Geoffrey Muhanguzi). The sum of group-specific estimates, and the estimate of total population size obtained by pooling data from all communities for analysis, appear at the bottom.
