Hormonal responses to male-male interactions have been detected in some studies of vertebrates but not others. One hypothesis that may partially explain these discrepancies is that differences in the duration of male-male interactions cause different hormonal responses. In social systems based on dominance-subordinance hierarchies interactions often last longer than if exclusive territories are maintained. Tests of the hypothesis that encounter duration explains discrepancies in hormonal… CONTINUE READING
