Project (2013-ongoing) Male-male interactions within an all-male unit of Yunnan snub-nosed monkeys

The overall goal of this project is to investigate male-male interactions in an all-male unit in a complex multilevel society of Yunnan snub-nosed monkeys (Rhinopithecus bieti) in China.

More specifically, the study is aimed at characterizing the social network of an all-male unit, identifying the factors that influence male-male interactions, and examining the effect of seasonality on male-male social relationships.
