Social behavior and reproduction

Social behavior and reproduction

(p.119) Chapter 5 Social behavior and reproduction
The Red Colobus Monkeys

Thomas T. Struhsaker

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the intragroup social behaviour of red colobus, including grooming, reproduction, aggression, and miscellaneous behaviour. Most of the information comes from the detailed and long-term studies of two social groups of tephrosceles in Kibale. Results from the Kibale studies are compared with the only other taxa for which there are details on these topics, i.e., temminckii, badius, rufomitratus, and kirkii. The sections pertaining to reproduction deal with more than behaviour. They present information and conclusions regarding a wide range of subjects related to reproduction, such as the timing of births, interbirth intervals (IBIs), reproductive success and its relation to dominance status, age of sexual maturity, sexual swellings, twinning, etc.

Keywords:   red colobus monkeys, intragroup social behaviour, grooming, reproduction, aggression
