Neighbours, however, are not only competitors but also potential mates. Intergroup interactions might provide a direct mechanism for the assessment of breeding opportunities in neighbouring groups. I studied 228 intergroup interactions in wild cooperatively breeding common marmosets to understand how animals might balance their cooperation in territorial defence with… CONTINUE READING
