These tables contain baboon-related data that are the result of analysis. The RANKS table holds the result of a manual analysis, its data may be updated by Babase users. The remaining tables are automatically updated in accordance with changes made to the primary baboon source data. There is no provision for manual modification of the automatically generated tables.

These tables exist because a relatively large amount of effort, either human or machine, is required to populate them. The tables store the results of that effort and make the results readily available to further analysis.

This section first presents the tables themselves. In the case of the automatically populated tables, or whatever portions of the primary source tables are automatically generated, subsequent sub-sections explain exactly how the tables are populated and so provide further insight into their content.
