Different environmental requirements of female and male Siberian ibex, Capra sibirica
Using the Maximum entropy model, it is found that the ruggedness and elevation of the terrain were the most important factors affecting habitat selection in Siberian ibex.

Vigilance Patterns of Territorial Guanacos (Lama guanicoe): The Role of Reproductive Interests and Predation Risk
The hypothesis that both sexes perceive significant antipredator benefits of group living is supported, as both sexes benefited from grouping by reducing the time invested in vigilance and increased foraging effort.
Vigilance and group size in impala (Aepyceros melampus Lichtenstein): a study in Nairobi National Park, Kenya
One of the advantages of living in groups is that individuals may need to be less vigilant, allowing them more time for other important activities, such as foraging. This relationship between group
The influence of conspecifics and predation risk on the vigilance of elk (Cervus elaphus) in Yellowstone National Park
It is concluded that the primary benefit of vigilance for male elk is to monitor conspecifics, but the primaryBenefits for female elk are to detect potential predators.
Social structure, vigilance and behaviour of plains zebra (Equus burchellii): a 5-year case study of individuals living on a managed wildlife reserve
This study established a base line for plains zebra activity that could assist in understanding the factors that influence the successful management and conservation of healthy populations.
Group-Size Effect on Vigilance and Foraging in a Predator-Free Population of Feral Goats (Capra hircus) on the Isle of Rum, NW Scotland
The results imply that the benefits for foraging obtained from the reduced vigilance level in larger groups may be constrained or offset by increased interaction (or competition) within larger groups even in a population that faces negligible predation risk.
Predation risk, gender and the group size effect: does elk vigilance depend upon the behaviour of conspecifics?
Individual and group vigilance of Rocky Mountain elk, Cervus elaphus, in three regions of Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, U.S.A. is compared to show the decrease in individual scanning with herd size may depend more on changes in individual risk than on cooperative detection of predators.
Intra-sexual variability in feeding behaviour of a mountain ungulate: size matters
The results showed that smaller males were more selective than larger ones, on account of their lower capability of digesting plant, and the effects of body mass per se on both foraging and anti-predator behaviours in herbivores, supporting the Jarman-Bell principle.
Vigilance behavior of Pyrenean chamois Rupicapra pyrenaica pyrenaica: Effect of sex and position in the herd
The objective was to study the effect of central vs. periph- eral position in the herd on feeding and vigilance behavior in male and female Pyrenean chamois and to ascertain if a group size effect existed.
Grouping patterns and social organization in Siberian ibex (Capra sibirica): feeding strategy matters
The grouping pattern and social organization of Siberian ibex were closely correlated to the availability and quality of their food supply and yearly breeding cycle.
