Previous studies on macaques and baboons showed that after agonistic conflicts aggressees as well as aggressors show an increase in stress-related behavior such as scratching. Reconciliation reduces stress-related behavior of the aggressee. We investigated the influence of various affiliative postconflict behaviors of the aggressor on the aggressor's scratching rates in captive long-tailed macaques: reconciliation, contacts with the aggressee's kin (or substitute reconciliation), and contact… 
Calming an aggressor through spontaneous post‐conflict triadic contacts: Appeasement in Macaca tonkeana
It is found that triadic post-conflict affiliation occurred independently from the intensity of the conflict and that it was more frequent in absence of the conciliatory contact between the opponents (reconciliation).
Postconflict Affiliation of Aggressors in Papio hamadryas
Researchers have associated variation in the occurrence of postconflict behaviors with variation in the relationship quality between involved individuals. Apart from those on the great apes, the vast

Triadic postconflict affiliation in captive chimpanzees: does consolation console?
Testing the function of reconciliation and third‐party affiliation for aggressors in hamadryas baboons (Papio hamadryas hamadryas)
It was found that after conflicts hamadryas baboon aggressors showed increased rates of anxiety‐related behaviors and that they were also more likely to be involved in renewed aggressive interactions, suggesting that the aggressors' post‐conflict anxiety might be owing mainly to the damage that the conflict causes to their relationship with the victim.

Post-Conflict Affiliative Behaviors Towards Humans in Domestic Dogs (Canis familiaris) - eScholarship
This is the first work that presents reconciliation in dogs in a conflict situation with humans and discusses the importance of this phenomenon in the dog-human bond.
Postconflict third-party affiliation in stumptailed macaques
This study establishes the occurrence of multiple postconflict triadic affiliation in stumptailed macaques, and is the first to show that victims receive contacts from third parties in a cercopithecine species, a behaviour previously described only in chimpanzees.
Post-conflict opponent affiliation reduces victim re-aggression in a family group of captive arctic wolves (Canis lupus arctos)
The hypothesis that post-conflict opponent affiliation (POA) in wolves may have been selected for as a mechanism to avoid conflict escalation, which could lead to social disruption and hence jeopardize cooperative activities is supported.


Affiliation Between Aggressors and Third Parties Following Conflicts in Long-Tailed Macaques (Macaca fascicularis)
The findings emphasize that conflicts influence the behavior of other monkeys besides the direct contestants and, thus, indicate that the disturbance of social homeostasis is a matter of concern for all group members.

Post-conflict anxiety in nonhuman primates: The mediating role of emotion in conflict resolution
During the last two decades, much research has focused on the mechanisms used by nonhuman primates for conflict resolution. Reconciliation, i.e., a friendly reunion between former opponents, has been
Reconciliation and Redirected Affection in Rhesus Monkeys
The question whether rhesus monkeys reconcile was empirically translated as: Do they seek non-agonistic contact with former adversaries? The study concerned a captive group of forty-one monkeys,
Redirected aggression and reconciliation among vervet monkeys, Cercopithecus aethiops
Among both kin and nonkin, opponents were significantly more likely to threaten their opponents' relatives following a fight than during matched-control periods (simple redirected aggression).
Reconciliation and consolation among chimpanzees
‘kissing’ is characteristic of reconciliation and ‘embracing’ of consolation according to the data, which indicate that former opponents preferentially make body contact with each other rather than with third partners.
Reconciliation following aggression in patas monkeys, Erythrocebus patas
Differential kinship effect on reconciliation in three species of macaques (Macaca fascicularis, M. fuscata, and M. sylvanus).
The hypothesis that kinship effects on reconciliation are stronger the more despotic the species is is confirmed, and differences in reconciliation frequency between kin and nonkin were less pronounced among the less despotic Barbary macaques.
Toward a comparative socioecology of the genus Macaca: Different dominance styles in rhesus and stumptail monkeys
Comparisons with a second rhesus group, and with published reports, suggest that while some of the observed differences are probably representative of the two species, considerable intraspecific variation does exist, and a more comprehensive program of comparative studies is needed.
Side-Directed Communication and Agonistic Interactions in Chimpanzees
A multi-variate analysis of the contexts of this highly variable behaviour indicates that it can be divided into several functional categories; taking refuge; seeking reassurance; enlisting support; begging for support and taking courage.
