Structure of social relationships in a captive gelada group: A test of some hypotheses derived from studies of a wild population
Data are presented on the structure of social relationships in a wild group of gelada baboons (Theropithecus gelada). These data lend support to the deduction from wild populations that female grooming dyads are matrilineal in origin. The observations are discussed in relation to a number of other conclusions on the nature of inter-individual relationships in gelada reproductive units. © 1982 Japan Monkey Centre.
