ABSTRACT
This study investigated the aggressive behavior of female Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata (Blyth, 1875)) during lactation. Following parturition, the frequency of aggression showed an initial decline during weeks 1–2 of infant life, then increased to peak during weeks 7–8 post partum, and finally declined again to prepartum levels. Neither the initial decline nor the subsequent increase in aggression rate post partum was related to sociodemographic characteristics of the mother–infant dyad or to measures of maternal style. These results suggest that variation in postpartum aggression may be influenced less by the quality of the mother–infant relationship than by the mother's relationships the mother has with group mates.

    Male Japanese macaques ( Macaca fuscata yakui) in a troop on Yakushima Island frequently groom other males. However, previous studies have not compared the social relations of troop males to those of non-troop males. I followed all troop males and non-troop males in and near a troop during a...

    Typically, Japanese macaques are thought to avoid encountering other groups wherever possible. Intergroup relations between macaques on Shodoshima Island, however, appear exceptional. We show that neighboring groups of Shodoshima monkeys spent 32.8% of their active time in proximity to (<100 m)...

    Communication plays a large role in resource competition, especially for potential mates, and is used by members of the competing sex to assess each other, and simultaneously to evaluate the other sex, which may be advertising its status. To assess the effects of female advertisement on male...

    Competition between closely related species can affect behavioral interactions. Intense interspecific competition may favor the evolution of elevated levels of interspecific aggression, termed alpha selection. Salamanders of the genus Plethodon exhibit territorial aggression, and in some cases...
