While a large number of studies have described animal social networks, we have a poor understanding of how these networks vary with ecological and social conditions. For example, reproductive periods are an important life-history stage that may involve changes in dominance relationships among individuals, yet no study to date has compared social networks of do- minance interactions (i.e. dominance networks) across reproductive contexts. We first analyzed a long-term dataset on captive so- cial… CONTINUE READING
