Micro-and macroevolutionary effects of social group fission will be enhanced if genetic differentiation between fission products is greater than expected by randomly dividing a parent group. There is evidence that division along lines of maternal relatedness produces such an enhanced effect in the provisioned colony of rhesus monkeys on Cayo Santiago Island. In contrast, the genetic analysis presented here of group fission in a wild population of rheusus monkeys in the Himalyan foothills of… CONTINUE READING
