  • Female dispersal is uncommon among female-bonded primate societies, even though at times there may be considerable incentive to do so, e.g., to avoid potentially infanticidal males. Predation risk and the advantages of sharing the costs of group living, such as infanticide and resource defense, with close kin are assumed to limit female dispersal. However, we show that these costs may not be as important as the risks associated with integration into a new group in female-bonded societies. We… CONTINUE READING
