Maternal Investment in Captive Bonnet Macaques (Macaca radiata)
  • J. Silk
  • Biology
    The American Naturalist
  • 1988
TLDR
The data suggest that in the long run, low-ranking females may also benefit more from investing in males than in females, as shown in this population of bonnet macaques.
Determinants of male mating success in a large group of Barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus) at Affenberg Salem
TLDR
The results indicate that mating and, most probably, reproductive success of male Barbary macaques is dependent on the male's social position in the group, which is defined not only by the outcome of dyadic agonistic encounters but also by the ability to get a central position inThe group, and on the stability of rank relations.
Relation between the dominance rank of female rhesus monkeys and their access to males
TLDR
Findings demonstrate the existence of female mate competition in an Old World primate through the “dominant female effect”, a robust phenomenon that depended solely on female dominance rank.
A case report of a male rank reversal in a group of wild white-faced capuchins (Cebus capucinus)
TLDR
At the time of the rank reversal, females switched from giving thegargle vocalization exclusively to the old alpha male to gargling to the new alpha male; however, juveniles were less consistent with regard to which male they gargled to, and juveniles' patterns of affiliation with males did not change in a predictable way following the reversal.
Female dominance rank and behavior during artificial menstrual cycles in social groups of rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta)
TLDR
Evidence for the hypothesis that copulations by pairs of rhesus monkeys are linked more closely to the ovulatory phase of the female's menstrual cycle when a male has access to several females in different cycle phases rather than access to females in the same cycle phase is reported.
Benefits, costs, and determinants of dominance in American black ducks
TLDR
Dominant black ducks interacted more frequently and were more likely to form pair bonds than subordinates, thus higher energy costs of dominant individuals may explain the poor relationship between physical condition and dominance rank.

Altruism Among Female Macaca Radiata: Explanations and Analysis of Patterns of Grooming and Coalition Formation
TLDR
Analysis of the observed patterns of two forms of putative altruism among adult female members of a group of captive bonnet macaques (Macaca radiata) indicates that both kinship and dominance rank influence the distribution and rate of these behaviors.
Social Relationships Among Adult Male and Female Baboons. I. Behaviour During Sexual Consortship
TLDR
Although rates of female-female aggression were not affected by the formation of sexual consortship, adult females were more likely both to ignore threats from higher-ranking individuals and to be supported by adult males during sexual Consortship than at other times.
Behaviour of the adult males in a troop of free-ranging chacma baboons (Papio ursinus).
  • G. Saayman
  • Psychology
    Folia primatologica; international journal of primatology
  • 1971
TLDR
Evidence that other baboons perceived temperamental differences between the adult males is presented and the role ofindividual differences between troop leaders in intertroop variability is discussed.
Dominance and reproduction in Baboons (Papio cynocephalus).
TLDR
This monograph reports on a 14 month study of yellow baboons in the Masai-Amboseli Game Reserve, Kenya, an attempt to determine the relationship between agonistic dominance and reproductive success in male baboons and centered around testing a priority-of-access model of mating behavior.
Patterns of sexual behavior in male macaques
TLDR
A positive correlation was found between rank and sexual activity in fascicularis and mulatta males and the youngest and most subordinate radiata males were the most sexually active males, and a relationship between degree of intermale competition, intermale tolerance and type of mounting pattern was revealed.
Dominance Rank, Copulatory Behavior, and Differential Reproduction
  • D. Dewsbury
  • Biology, Psychology
    The Quarterly Review of Biology
  • 1982
TLDR
Both the concept of dominance and the validity of the hypothesis relating it to copulatory behavior and to differential reproduction appear viable for at least some species, although the body of data relating rank to both copulation and differential reproduction remains minimal.

  • 1974
TLDR
Analyses were made of population statistics and reproduction parameters covering a ten-year period at the free-ranging rhesus monkey colony at La Parguera, Puerto Rico, finding that males had higher mortality rates and the death rate for females remained very low and constant.
The association between rank and reproductive success of male rhesus monkeys
  • D. G. Smith
  • Biology, Psychology
    American journal of primatology
  • 1981
TLDR
It is argued that changes in rank position typically follow, rather than precede, changes in reproductive success in rhesus monkeys.
