Dynamics of male dominance in a baboon troop / Universal Education and Visual Arts
- Explores the male dominance pattern in one troop of baboons in Nairobi Game Park. Changes in troop hierarchy from those observed in 1959 and 1963 provide a historical perspective for the 1964 data tracing a young male's entry into a central dominanted position and his subsequent aging and decline. Full identification of individual males makes it possible to follow the adult males as they spar for dominance with gestures of threat and aggression. Reveals the importance of coalitions of "central males" in dominance hierarchy.
