The relative success of chimpanzee male mating strategies, the role of male dominance rank and the success of inbreeding avoidance behaviour can only be assessed when paternities are known. We report the probable paternities of 14 chimpanzees included in a long‐term behavioural study of chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii) at Gombe National Park, Tanzania. DNA samples were collected noninvasively from shed hair and faeces and genotyped using 13–16 microsatellite loci characterized in… 
Paternity and social rank in wild chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) from the Budongo Forest, Uganda.
We analyzed patterns of paternity and male dominance rank in the Sonso community of wild East African chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii) in the Budongo Forest, Uganda. Our major objective
Relatedness in wild chimpanzees: influence of paternity, male philopatry, and demographic factors.
TLDR
The paternity of 11 offspring and the relatedness of 50 individuals in the M group of chimpanzees at Mahale Mountains National Park, Tanzania, were investigated using DNA analyses and it is suggested that although the average relatedness among adult males does not reach the level of half-siblings, under some circumstances it can exceed therelatedness of females.
Paternity and relatedness in wild chimpanzee communities
TLDR
The genetic structure of three contiguous wild chimpanzee communities in West Africa was examined to determine the extent to which the community, the mixed-sex social unit of chimpanzees, represents a closed reproductive unit, and the distribution of genetic relationships within the group suggests that the group is bonded through relationships between males and females.
Paternity and kin structure among neighbouring groups in wild bonobos at Wamba
TLDR
Analysis of paternity of 17 offspring in two bonobo groups and the relatedness of individuals among three neighbouring groups suggests that the differences in hostility towards males of different groups between bonobos and chimpanzees may be explained by factors other than kinship.
The context of female dispersal in Kanyawara chimpanzees
TLDR
Examination of the behavioural and hormonal context of female dispersal in chimpanzees of Kibale National Park, Uganda finds no evidence that females avoided mating in their natal group, even with known relatives, suggesting that inbreeding avoidance is not a sufficient proximate explanation for dispersal.
Male competition and paternity in wild chimpanzees of the Taï forest.
In social animals, competition among males for mates affects individual reproductive success. The priority-of-access model attempts to account for the influence of demographic conditions within
Male and Female Reproductive Success in Macaca sylvanus in Gibraltar: No Evidence for Rank Dependence
TLDR
It might be concluded either that a correlation between social rank and reproductive success is generally absent in Barbary macaques or that artificially favorable environmental conditions in Gibraltar preclude any correlation.

TLDR
The results are consistent with the hypothesis that sexual coercion is an important component of male chimpanzee mating strategies in many sociodemographic circumstances, but also show that male tactics vary both in response to and independently of those circumstances.
Male reproductive strategies in black and gold howler monkeys (Alouatta caraya)
TLDR
It is found that dominant or central males achieved greater mating success and fathered all the offspring conceived during this study in two multimale–multifemale groups (both including three adult males).

Female reproductive strategies, paternity and community structure in wild West African chimpanzees
TLDR
Pedigree relationships in that community of 55 wild chimpanzees in the Taï Forest, Côte d'Ivoire show that female mate choice strategies are more variable than previously supposed and that the observed social groups are not the exclusive reproductive units.
Paternity exclusion in a community of wild chimpanzees using hypervariable simple sequence repeats
TLDR
The use of hypervariable simple sequence repeat (SSR) nuclear loci to study paternity in a community of wild chimpanzees in Gombe National Park, Tanzania allows the probable identification of the previously undetermined father; these are the first such determinations for free‐ranging chimpanzees, and the first based on non‐invasive sampling.

TLDR
Developmental and demographic data from observations for 19 years show that female chimpanzees have a very limited reproductive potential and the most dominant male was the only male able to monopolize oestrous females by showing possessiveness.
Evidence for dominant wild female chimpanzees investing more in sons
TLDR
The absence of such a differential investment by mothers in other chimpanzee populations is compatible with an explanation based on variations within the female-biased dispersal pattern in this species and the possible role of maternal condition.
Social and Genetic Aspects of Paternity in Wild Long-Tailed Macaques (Macaca Fascicularis)
TLDR
In a field study of three groups of wild long-tailed macaques, observations on social behaviour could be related to genetically determined paternity, a relatively strong correlation between male dominance rank and reproductive success is found.
Patterns of Paternity in Relation To Male Social Rank in the Stumptailed Macaque, Macaca Arctoides
TLDR
Results showed that each of three consecutive alpha males was effective in achieving a virtual monopoly in siring offspring during his tenure, with one exception possibly related to inbreeding avoidance.
Intracommunity relationships, dispersal pattern and paternity success in a wild living community of Bonobos (Pan paniscus) determined from DNA analysis of faecal samples
TLDR
It is demonstrated that faecal samples can be a useful source for the determination of kinship in a whole community and support previous inferences on female dispersal and male philopatry.

TLDR
Analysis of reproductive records for chimpanzees living in Gombe National Park, Tanzania, between 1964 and 1994 indicated that a lower percentage of conceptions occurred during consort matings than was previously thought, suggesting additional research is needed on this topic.

Behavior predicts genes structure in a wild primate group.
TLDR
In the first quantitative test of the priority-of-access model among wild primates, the reproductive priority of dominant males was confirmed by molecular genetic analysis, however, the resultant high short-term variance in reproductive success did not translate into equally high long- term variance because male dominance status was unstable.
