Environmental and genetic causes of maturational differences among rhesus macaque matrilines

  author={Gregory E. Blomquist},
  journal={Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology},
Females of many cercopithecine primates live in stable dominance hierarchies that create long-term asymmetries among sets of female relatives (matrilines) in access to limiting resources and shelter from psychosocial stress. Rank-related differences in fitness components are widely documented, but their causes are unclear. Predicted breeding values from an animal model for female age of first reproduction are used to discriminate between shared additive genetic and shared environmental effects… CONTINUE READING
