Project (2015-ongoing) Social dynamics in golden snub-nosed monkeys

January 6, 2015

Golden snub-nosed monkeys in China form multilevel societies characterized by one-male units embedded within a larger bands.

 

 

The functional significance of band formation is not yet fully understood, but it could offer individuals better protection from takeover attempts by bachelor males through safety-in-numbers or collective defence.

 

 

The social dynamics of bachelor groups and reproductive groups are being explored in collaboration with researchers in China.
