Monkeys in the Middle: Parasite Transmission through the Social Network of a Wild Primate
In wildlife populations, group-living is thought to increase the probability of parasite transmission because contact rates increase at high host densities. Physical contact, such as social grooming,Expand

Dominance and reproductive rates in captive female olive baboons, Papio anubis.
The reproductive cycles of 23 captive olive baboons were studied over two successive parturitions. Interbirth intervals of 450 days were reduced by 60% in comparison to wild baboons, and consisted ofExpand

Energetics during reproduction: a doubly labeled water study of lactating baboons.
Understanding the costs and regulation of reproduction in primates requires understanding the separate but linked effects of energy availability and total energy expenditure (TEE). We comparedExpand

Relationship between sexual interactions and the timing of the fertile phase in captive female Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata)
Japanese macaques live in multi‐male/multi‐female social groups in which competition between males, female mate choice, and alternative male mating strategies are important determinants of mating andExpand

Growth in colony living anubis baboon infants and its relationship with maternal activity budgets and reproductive status.
Early growth is of interest because it is susceptible to maternal effects and linked to fitness components for a range of species. Here we present anthropometric measurements on 23 infant oliveExpand

Multimodal Sexual Signaling and Mating Behavior in Olive Baboons (Papio anubis)
In primate species, mating decisions seem to be based on multiple signal elements with different roles in the signaling of female reproductive status. Whereas some primate signals are relatively wellExpand

Kinetics of stable isotope and body composition in olive baboons (Papio anubis) estimated by deuterium dilution space: a pilot study
Abstract:  Morphometrics and isotope‐labelled water were used to determine body composition [total body water, total body fat and fat‐free mass (FFM)] of three captive female olive baboons (PapioExpand

Environmental, biological, and social factors influencing fecal adrenal steroid concentrations in female Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata)
The ability to determine hormonal profiles of primate populations using non‐invasive techniques can help to monitor physical fitness, stress, and physiological responses to environmental changes. WeExpand

Impact of social environment on variation in menstrual cycle length in captive female olive baboons (Papio anubis).
Factors affecting menstrual cycles and conception were explored for captive female olive baboons. We evaluated the relationship between the social environment and adequacy of the menstrual cycle inExpand

Energetic consequences of seasonal breeding in female Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata).
Japanese macaques inhabit a relatively cold environment and females of this species could have developed strategies of energy economy to face the sometimes-harsh seasonal conditions of temperateExpand
