Summary We performed experiments with cichlid e sh to test whether several basic aspects of dominance were the same in isolated pairs as in pairs within a social group of three or four. We found that the social context, whether a pair was isolated or within a group, strongly affected the basic properties of dominance relationships. In particular, the stability of relationships over time, the replication of relationships in successive meetings, and the extent of the loser effect were all signie… Expand

TLDR
This model suggests that a system of individuals, moving through an artificial world and reacting together, is adequate to account for the formation of some patterns comparable to those resulting from animal and human behavior. Expand
Social Feedback and the Emergence of Rank in Animal Society
TLDR
A new theory is presented, of a feedback loop between knowledge of rank and consequent behavior, that explains the transition to strategic aggression and the formation and persistence of dominance hierarchies in groups capable of both social memory and inference. Expand
Social feedback and the emergence of rank in animal society
TLDR
A new theory is presented, of a feedback loop between knowledge of rank and consequent behavior, that explains the transition to strategic aggression, and the formation and persistence of dominance hierarchies in groups capable of both social memory and social inference. Expand
The ghost of social environments past: dominance relationships include current interactions and experience carried over from previous groups
TLDR
Using a fusion–fission protocol, groups of previously isolated shore crabs are fused into larger groups, and then restored groups to their original size and composition, in which experiences from previous groups can carry over to affect current competitive interactions. Expand
Self-structuring properties of dominance hierarchies a new perspective.
TLDR
It is suggested that linear forms of organization in hierarchies emerge from several kinds of behavioral processes, or sequences of interaction, that are common across many different species of animals from ants to chickens and fish and even some primates. Expand
The Fragility of Individual-Based Explanations of Social Hierarchies: A Test Using Animal Pecking Orders
TLDR
An example of a dynamic approach that considers dominance hierarchies to be dynamic networks, uses dynamic sequences of interaction (dynamic network motifs) to explain the organization of dominance hierarchie, and derives these dynamic sequences directly from observation of hierarchy formation is developed. Expand
The use of multiple sources of social information in contest behavior: testing the social cognitive abilities of a cichlid fish
Theory suggests that living in large social groups with dynamic social interactions often favours the evolution of enhanced cognitive abilities. Studies of how animals assess their own contestExpand
Data-Based Analysis of Winner-Loser Models of Hierarchy Formation in Animals
TLDR
The new behavioral dynamics of hierarchy formation discovered in the hen data suggest that members of groups are intensely aware both of their own interactions as well as interactions occurring among other members of their group. Expand
Self-organizing dominance hierarchies in a wild primate population
TLDR
The results show that both social self-organization dynamics and prior attributes can combine to influence hierarchy dynamics even when agonistic interactions are strongly influenced by differences in individual attributes. Expand
Personality does not predict social dominance in wild groups of black-capped chickadees
Dominance hierarchies characterize social groups of various species and can significantly influence individual fitness. Personality traits, consistent behavioural differences between individuals,Expand

Individual differences versus social dynamics in the formation of animal dominance hierarchies
TLDR
The results suggest that dominance hierarchy formation is a much richer and more complex phenomenon than previously thought and the implications for evolutionary biology, the social sciences, and the use of animal models in understanding human social organization are explored. Expand
Modelling Dominance Hierarchy formation as a Multi-player game
TLDR
A model of dominance hierarchy formation using a multi-player extension of the classical Hawk-Dove game is introduced, and its emergent properties are discussed in the context of experimental observations. Expand
Alliances as a means of competition in primates: Evolutionary, developmental, and cognitive aspects
Nonhuman primates commonly compete for mates, physical resources and dominance status. Competition is manifest in one-to-one contests or in more complex, multipartite aggressive interactionsExpand
The sequential analysis of aggressive acts during hierarchy formation: an application of the ‘jigsaw puzzle’ approach
Abstract The ‘jigsaw puzzle’ approach is a general method for investigating how interactions among individuals cumulate to form the overall patterns of dominance behaviour in groups. Here, the modelExpand
Towards the integration of social dominance and spatial structure
TLDR
It is shown how individual-oriented (or artificial life) models may provide an integrative background for the development of theories about dominance by including effects of spatial structure in which the effects of winning and losing are self-reinforcing. Expand
DYNAMICS OF HIERARCHY FORMATION: THE SEQUENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF DOMINANCE RELATIONSHIPS
A method for investigating the behavioral sequences used in forming dominance hierarchies is presented. There are four possible sequences for the formation of the first two dominance relationships inExpand
Behavioral processes leading to linear status hierarchies following group formation in rhesus monkeys
Agonistic interactions during the first 45 minutes following formation of three member groups of rhesus macaques were examined in order to determine whether behavioral processes exist which ensureExpand
Training siblings to be submissive losers: dominance between booby nestlings
Abstract Second-hatched chicks in two-chick broods of the blue-footed boody, Sula nebouxii , usually remain subordinate to their siblings throughout the nestling period, even those that outgrow theExpand
The winner and loser effect: integrating multiple experiences
TLDR
It is concluded that penultimate fighting experiences had a significant effect on the probability of winning a subsequent contest and a more recent experience had a more pronounced effect than an earlier experience. Expand
Structure of the Dominance Hierarchy and Dominance Determining "Group Factors" in Melanochromis Auratus (Pisces, Cichlidae)
TLDR
Melanochromis auratus, a cichlid fish from Lake Malawi, is studied under laboratory conditions as a representative model and dominance relations in pairs of animals differ from those (between the same fishes) in groups of conspecifics. Expand
