This proposal is for NCEAS support to a Working Group to analyse, synthesize and present an extensive body of knowledge on the population of elephants in Amboseli National Park, Kenya, based on a perspective of three decades of uninterrupted study of known individuals. The results of these studies will increase knowledge of elephant biology in the context of general paradigms of long-lived, highly intelligent and social species. It will also provide information fundamental to the conservation of elephants throughout their range.
