Spatial organization and monogamy in the mara Dolichotis patagonum
TLDR
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.
Structure of Gelada Baboon Reproductive Units: IV. Integration at Group Level
and Summary Behaviour patterns related to the coordination of group members and the spatial integration of the reproductive units of gelada baboons (Theropithecus gelada) were examined in order to
The social and spatial organisation of the beira antelope (Dorcatragus megalotis): a relic from the past?
TLDR
Overall, the social and spatial organisation of the beira appears to be intermediate between that of the dik-diks (Madoqua spp.), in which units exceptionally include more than one adult female, and the oribi (Ourebia ourebi), in whichunits can include several adult males.
Social Monogamy in the Big‐Clawed Snapping Shrimp, Alpheus heterochelis
TLDR
Results show empirically for the first time that guarding may be beneficial, even if males are not able to assess the female's reproductive stage, and extends the theoretical framework for understanding the evolution of social monogamy in taxa without biparental care of young.
DIURNAL SPACING PATTERNS IN KIT FOXES, A MONOGAMOUS CANID
TLDR
Kit foxes (Vulpes macrotis) are socially monogamous and live in male-female pairs or small family groups, but on days when they did not share the same den, mated pairs did not occupy dens that were closer together (or farther apart) than expected by chance.
SEXUAL SEGREGATION IN UNGULATES: A NEW APPROACH
TLDR
It is concluded that a phylogenetic comparison of behavior of a wide range of ungulates and other mammals will be needed to solve the enigma of sexual segregation.
Social Organization of the Eastern Rock Elephant-Shrew ( Elephantulus myurus ): The Evidence for Mate Guarding
TLDR
The spatial organization of Eastern Rock Sengis in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, from August - December 2000 was studied to describe the home ranges of males and females using radiotelemetry, noting the sizes and overlap of adjacent ranges and how the spatial organization changes through time.
Optimal patterns of scent marks in klipspringer (Oreotragus oreotragus) territories
TLDR
An analytical model is developed which tests the efficacy of scent-marking strategies along the continuum between extreme hinterland and extreme perimeter marking and shows that the optimal position for a ring of scent marks is at 0.78 of the territory radius and is the product of a trade-off between maximizing the probability of mark detection by intruders and minimizing the cost of intrusion.
Special Relationships between Female Asian Elephants (Elephas maximus) in Zoological Gardens
TLDR
The hypothesis that Asian elephant females may form special relationships was tested and confirmed and the removal of one member of a special relationship from the enclosure would elicit more arousal behaviour in the respective partner.
Selection of scent-marking sites by klipspringers (Oreotragus oreotragus)
TLDR
It is concluded that, simply through preferential selection of certain local characteristics, klipspringers may enhance the visibility and predictability of their scent marks.

On Territoriality in Ungulates and an Evolutionary Model
TLDR
The behavioral characteristics of territorial ungulates are reviewed and compared with non-territorial species in terms of social distribution, spatial dispersion, and interaction patterns and a comparison is made with territorial systems in other animal groups.
The Social Organisation of Antelope in Relation To Their Ecology
TLDR
The paper describes different feeding styles among antelope, in terms of selection of food items and coverage of home ranges, and argues that these feeding styles bear a relationship to maximum group size of feeding animals through the influence of dispersion ofFood items upon group cohesion.
On the Relationship of Social Evolution and Ecology in Ungulates
  • V. Geist

  • 1974
TLDR
Although links do exist between ecology and behavior, they nevertheless represent distinct realms of natural selection in which social behavior appears as the more conservative element, and the theoretical basis for this is discussed.
Socioecology of Marmots: Female Reproductive Strategies
The relationship between female reproductive success and both spring food and hibernacula resources was examined in a high-altitude population of yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota flaviventris). The
Competition and niche separation in a high altitude herbivore community in Ethiopia
TLDR
Seven species of herbivores which formed a semi-natural community were studied in a montane heath habitat in northern Ethiopia, and all species were found to have increased in numbers over a 3-year period, so that no species could be said to be suffering from ecological competition in the strict sense.
Survival, mating and rearing strategies in the evolution of primate social structure.
TLDR
The bearing of variations in certain aspects of social structure on the survival and reproductive success of individuals is discussed and their bearing on reproductive success and individual survival evaluated.
On the Evolution of Mating Systems in Birds and Mammals
TLDR
Most cases of polygyny in birds, a group in which monogamy is the most common mating pattern, can be explained on the basis of the model, and those cases not apparently fitting into the predictions are clearly indicated.
