The Season for Peace: Reconciliation in a Despotic Species (Lemur catta)

It is found that season (but not rank; individuals’ identity, sex, and age; or group identity) significantly affected individual reconciliation rates, and such rates were lowest during the mating period, suggesting reconciliation can be present in despotic social groups except when the advantages of intra-group cooperation are overcome by competition, as occurs in seasonal breeders when reproduction is at stake.

Reconciling conflicts in a one-male society: the case of geladas (Theropithecus gelada)

Even though the study of post-conflict behaviour in geladas needs to be continued, the patchy nature of their social network is a good model for testing some of the theoretical assumptions about primate conflict resolution.

Effect of valuable relationship on reconciliation and initiator of reconciliation in captive bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus)

Results support the prospect that recipients of aggression are not impeded in initiating reconciliation in relaxed species, and suggest the valuable relationship hypothesis may be supported in bottlenose dolphins.

The effect of domestication on post-conflict management: wolves reconcile while dogs avoid each other

Evidence is provided for reconciliation in captive wolves, which are highly dependent on cooperation between pack members, while domestic dogs, which rely on conspecific cooperation less than wolves, avoided interacting with their partners after conflicts.

The Occurrence of Postconflict Skills in Captive Immature Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes)

The results provide evidence for postconflict skills in immature chimpanzees but the lack of higher conciliatory tendency with valuable partners and low occurrence of third-party affiliation indicates extended juvenility may be required to refine these skills.

Analysis of Post-agonism Reconciliation in a Captive Group of the Wedge-Capped Capuchin Monkey, Cebus olivaceus: a Pilot Study.

It is proposed that reconciliation may not be fundamental in maintaining social cohesion in Cebidae; nonetheless, due to the small sample, this is a preliminary conclusion.

Do wild brown lemurs reconcile? Not always

It is found that reconciliation occurs only in the non-feeding context and that it works in reducing the risk of renewed aggression in a wild group of wild brown lemurs.

An unusual case of affiliative association of a female Lemur catta in a Hapalemur meridionalis social group

The behavioural flexibility exhibited by both species has allowed the successful integration of the female ring-tailed lemur, and both species appeared to have a mutual understanding of vocalisations, behavioural synchronisation, dietary overlap, and possible service exchange.

Stranger to Familiar: Wild Strepsirhines Manage Xenophobia by Playing

Results indicate not only that play is the interface between strangers but also that it has a specific function in reducing xenophobia, and play appears to be an ice-breaker mechanism in the critical process that “upgrades” an individual from stranger to familiar.

Conflict management in wild spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi yucatanensis)

Animals living in groups are frequently exposed to conflicts of interest which can escalate into aggression. Aggressive interactions may be a means to resolve incompatibility among objectives.



Post-conflict behaviour of wild chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii) in the Budongo forest, Uganda

It is concluded that the post-conflict behaviour of chimpanzees is more variable than has previously been thought and is likely to be dependent on the prevailing social environment.

Reconciliation in the Spotted Hyena (Crocuta crocuta)

Theory predicts that it should often be in the best interests of gregarious animals to repair social bonds damaged by within-group conflict. Indeed, reconciliation in many primates takes the form of

Functional aspects of reconciliation among captive long‐tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis)

It is suggested that reconciliation can be an effective means to reduce the victim's acute stress and that its function in repairing social relationships can partly be mediated by its physiological effects.

Reconciliation and post-conflict behaviour in ringtailed lemurs, Lemur catta and redfronted lemurs, Eulemur fulvus rufus

Ringtailed lemurs provide the first documented example of a highly social species that appears to lack behavioural mechanisms to cope with the dispersive effects of intra-group aggression and significantly increased affinitive contact between victims of aggression and third parties during the post-conflict period.

Post‐conflict Behaviour of Wild Olive Baboons. I. Reconciliation, Redirection and Consolation

Observations of post-conflict interactions have provided important insights into primate social organization. In this study, the nature and determinants of post-conflict behaviour in a troop of wild

Reconciliation and relationship quality in Assamese macaques (Macaca assamensis)

Evidence that females reconcile most often with valuable and compatible social partners is provided, and it is suggested that future studies give more consideration to the possibility that males reconcile for reasons other than to repair relationships with valuable partners.

Reconciliation in Captive Chimpanzees: A Reevaluation with Controlled Methods

The findings thus confirm the existence of reconciliation in chimpanzees, which show one of the highest conciliatory tendencies among primate species.

Reconciliation in Wolves (Canis lupus): New Evidence for a Comparative Perspective

This study provides the first evidence for the occurrence of reconciliation in a group of zoo-kept wolves and finds that coalitionary support may be a good predictor for high level of conciliatory contacts in this species.

Reconciliation and Consolation in Captive Western Gorillas

The levels of consolation were higher in absence of reconciliation than in its presence, suggesting that consolation may function as an alternative mechanism in stress reduction of the victim.

How to Repair Relationships – Reconciliation in Wild Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes)

Reconciliation appears to repair the relationships of former opponents after being disturbed by aggressive interactions. Despite a consensus about the benefit of reconciliation, how former opponents
