Fruit characters as a basis of fruit choice and seed dispersal in a tropical forest vertebrate community
TLDR
The analyses of dispersal syndromes show that fruit species partitioning occurs more between mammal taxa than between mammals and birds, and suggest how fruit characters could have evolved under consumer pressure as a result of consumer roles as dispersers or seed predators. Expand
Monospecific vs polyspecific life: A comparative study of foraging and antipredatory tactics in a community of Cercopithecus monkeys
TLDR
Although both foraging efficiency and predator avoidance appeared to be improved by polyspecific association, several facts suggest that predation pressure, notably by the crowned hawk eagle, was the pime factor for the evolution of this life style. Expand
Forest structure and fruit availability as complementary factors influencing habitat use by a troop of monkeys (Cercopithecus cephus)
Among the parameters which may affect the ranging beha­ viour and troop movements of wild primates, food is one of the best documented for a number of species (for example Clutton­ Brock 1977,Expand
Differential release of diapause in the earwig Forficula auricularia as indicator of respective contribution of two cohorts to the reproductive generation
TLDR
La generation de chaque annee, constituee par la somme des deux cohortes, atteint le stade adulte en ete et the vitellogenese des femelles se termine avant the fin of l'automne. Expand
Socialization processes in primates: Use of multivariate analyses. I: Application to social development of captive mangabeys
TLDR
This study considered two main socialization processes, the acquisition of a social behavioral repertoire and the development of a network of social relationships, and consequently defined six comprehensive developmental parameters, which confirmed the importance of social interactions in non-human primate infants' development.

A QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF INDIVIDUALITY IN BARNACLE GOOSE LOUD CALLS
TLDR
Frequency spectrum and frequency modulation were individually distinctive and the combination of these two parameters gives excellent individual distinctiveness and enables 98% correct identification of the calls of individuals. Expand
Introducing anthropomorphism, discontinuities and anecdotes to question them
TLDR
A 'clinical analysis' of this anthropomorphism and discontinuist 'symptom' allows us to unravel its ideological aspect, namely the wishful thinking and the 'egomorphism' of a subject projecting a wishful representation of himself onto one who is not ego. Expand
Computer enhanced assessment of case-notes in studies of psychopathology: The example of an autistic subject
Case report notes on encounters and exchanges between a clinician and a patient are a rich and irreplaceable source of information in studies of psychopathology. The analysis and exploitation ofExpand
Socialization processes in primates: use of multivariate analyses II—Influence of sex on social development of captive rhesus monkeys
TLDR
The results showed that the social group and the infant's sex were the most influential variables when infants initiated interactions: male and DES female infants displayed a greater behavioral diversity than non-treated female infants. Expand
FEMALE FEEDING AID IN COMMON EARWIG FORFICULA AURICU‐LARIA L.
TLDR
The experiment shows that there is a female contribution to larval food intake, and this feeding aid can improve significantly the larval survival rate and development, however, the female care alone has no effect on larva survival and development. Expand
