In the home ranges of the monkeys, the densely utilized food sites (densely utilized sites of food resources of
Wada and Tokida, 1981) varied over a period of ten years. The Shiga B 2 troop changed both its densely utilized food sites and the kinds of tree mostly eaten within the same home range, whereas the Shiga C troop transferred to a new home range. The home range transition of the C troop was influenced by both food deficiencies and the existence of the B 2 troop. Based on these facts, it can be said that two types of long-term home range utilization were distinguishable. References
