Chez le Mara le couple represente une cellule tres etroitement u nie. Les relations entre le§ deux partenaires sont d'une richesse et d'une in ten site peu communes chez la plupart des Mammiferes. Male et femelle restent constamment proximity Tun de 1'autre, aid^s en cela par des signaux acoustiques et visuels. Le male semble £tre le principal beneficiaire de cette vie de couple qui lui assure un Statut social plus έΐβνέ dans la colonie. La femelle ne joue qu'un role passif dans la cohesion du… 

Juvenile development as part of the extraordinary social system of the Mara Dolichotis patagonum (Rodentia : Caviidae)

La transition entre la phase ou les jeunes se cachent et celle ou ils suivent se traduit par une brusque diminution du jeu et des comportements sociaux, and on observe egalement de nombreux controles olfactifs des jeunes par les membres du groupe.

Spatial organization and monogamy in the mara Dolichotis patagonum

The size of sheep flocks grazing at outstations during January provide a measure of the resource richness of patches where maras graze, and the richness of these patches in the dry season appear to limit the number of maras breeding at each settlement during the following wet season.

Communal breeding in the mara, Dolichotis patagonum

Observations compatible with hypotheses explaining the mara's social system in terms of resource dispersion, anti-predator behaviour and thermoregulation are compatible.

Social organization and foraging in emballonurid bats

Application of the general model cannot be simplified by measurement of a few variables such as body size or group size, but instead will generally require actual measurements of the critical resource dispersion parameters in the field.

It was found that the social relationships of muntjacs are complex and subtale, maybe more than one might expect from a solitary and primitive mammal.

Brain size and ecology in small mammals

The Sciuridae have the largest relative brain size, the Soricidae and Bathyergidae the smallest, and values for each genus were expressed as deviations from the lines of best fit.
