Male dispersal in patas monkeys ( Erythrocebus patas )

  title={Male dispersal in patas monkeys ( Erythrocebus patas )},
  author={Janice Chism and William Rogers},
Potential influences on natal dispersal of wild male patas monkeys ( Erythrocebus patas ) were investigated in Laikipia, Kenya, over a four-year period. Changes in variables were assessed over the six months prior to dispersals. Dispersers left at between 24 and 42 months of age; 60% left at >36 months of age (= the 'large juvenile' age class). Most dispersals coincided with the presence of extra-group males in the study area. Large juvenile males (LJMs) reduced time in proximity to other group… 

Male dispersal in a provisioned multilevel group of Rhinopithecus roxellana in Shennongjia Nature Reserve, China

The first systematic data on male dispersal in a provisioned multilevel group of Rhinopithecus roxellana is presented, based on 4.5 years of field observations in Shennongjia National Nature Reserve, China, and the male mating competition hypothesis was supported.

Demography and Life Histories of Sympatric Patas Monkeys, Erythrocebus patas, and Vervets, Cercopithecus aethiops, in Laikipia, Kenya

The results support the prediction from demographic models of life history evolution that high adult mortality relative to immature mortality selects for early maturation.

Social factors influencing natal dispersal in male white‐faced capuchins (Cebus capucinus)

It is indicated that group instability, as evidenced by the occurrence of a takeover, shorter tenure length of a natal male's father, and smaller group size, triggers natal dispersal in this species while the converse leads to a delay.

Leaving Home: Demographic, Endocrine, and Behavioral Correlates of Dispersal in Monogamous Owl Monkeys (Aotus Azarae) of Argentina

Natal dispersal, the movement of individuals from their birthplace to new areas in which they may breed, is an important aspect of life history that influences a variety of processes. Understanding

Temporal patterns in the social network of core units in Rwenzori Angolan colobus monkeys: Effects of food availability and interunit dispersal

This study shows the interconnected roles that food availability and dispersal have in shaping the C. ruwenzorii multi‐level social system, and highlights how ecological conditions can drive association patterns, impact interunit relationships, and influence social organization.

Sex‐biased dispersal of human ancestors

Life‐form and social organization of nonhuman primates, among them gatherers (foragers), hunter‐gatherers, agriculturalists, industrialists, and modern and extant humans are examined to conclude that dispersal patterns changed in response to environmental conditions during primate and human evolution.
