    ..Therefore, we suggest a metabolic hypothesis (as opposed to a nutritional hypothesis) to explain this result. However, at the present time, we cannot rule out a behavioral stress hypothesis...

    Joan B Silk
    Department of Anthropology, University of California Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    Curr Biol 20:1359-61. 2010
    ..These data extend our understanding of the adaptive value of social bonds in baboons and complement a growing body of evidence that indicates that social bonds have adaptive value in a range of taxa, from mice to humans [9, 14-19]...
  5. ncbi request reprint Female testosterone, dominance rank, and aggression in an Ethiopian population of hybrid baboons
    Jacinta C Beehner
    Department of Anthropology, Washington University, St Louis, Missouri, USA
    Am J Primatol 67:101-19. 2005

    ..As such, geladas fit the allostatic load model [Goymann & Wingfield, Animal Behaviour 67:591-602, 2004]. Our study confirms the importance of female philopatry in the kin-based Cercopithecine dominance system...
