Tolerant food sharing and reciprocity is precluded by despotism among bonobos but not chimpanzees.
A shallow dominance hierarchy was a necessary precondition for the evolution of human-like reciprocal food sharing and an egalitarian hierarchy may be more common in chimpanzees, at least in captivity, thus fostering reciprocal exchange. Expand
Coalitions in male Barbary macaques, Macaca sylvanus: strength, success and rules of thumb
Several quantitative models of coalition formation assume that a coalition is successful if the strength of the coalition is greater than the strength of the target, but unsuccessful otherwise.Expand
Cooperation and competition in chimpanzees: Current understanding and future challenges
While past and ongoing field work has added enormously to the understanding of the behavior of chimpanzees,3–8 gaps in knowledge persist, and this paper summarizes some of these gaps, giving special emphasis to male cooperation and female competition. Expand
Nepotistic cooperation in non-human primate groups

  • 2009
As more evidence of nepotism has accumulated, important questions about the evolutionary processes underlying these kin biases have been raised and other mechanisms, including contingent reciprocity and mutualism, could contribute to the nepotistic biases observed in non-human primate groups.

Analysis of paternity covaries with number of males, female estrous synchrony, and rates of extragroup paternity shows strong support for a limited control skew model, with reproductive skew within groups declining as female reproductive synchrony and the number of Males per group increase. Expand
Mother–offspring associations in Northern muriquis, Brachyteles hypoxanthus
The finding of non‐preferential associations between muriqui mothers and their older male offspring suggests that extended maternal investment in offspring may be of minimal value in their egalitarian society compared with its value for species living in hierarchical societies. Expand
Persistence of maternal effects in baboons: Mother's dominance rank at son's conception predicts stress hormone levels in subadult males
Testing the hypothesis that maternal dominance rank and reproductive experience as well as a male's own age and dominance rank predicted chronic fecal glucocorticoid concentrations in 17 subadult wild male baboons in the Amboseli basin, Kenya found persistence of these major maternal influences from the perinatal period may signal organizational effects of mothers on sons' HPA axis.

Advances in our understanding of mammalian sex‐biased dispersal
A review of mammalian data indicates that the relationship between direction of sex‐bias and mating system is not a simple one, and there is still need for a theoretical framework that can account for the complex interactions between inbreeding avoidance, kin competition and cooperation to explain the impressive diversity of patterns.
