An experimental analysis of social interaction in the common marmoset callithrix jacchus jacchus

Adult and juvenile common marmosets were introduced to unfamiliar conspecifics individually and in whole groups. In introductions using animals of the same sex, adults were mutually hostile unless they were related or socially familiar; juveniles behaved submissively to adults and little aggression was observed between juveniles. In introductions using animals of the opposite sex, males of all ages solicited females but females did not reciprocate. When whole groups were introduced, in 2 experiments most of the elder group members behaved aggressively and younger animals did not interact frequently; in an experiment in which the adult males were related, little aggression was observed and younger animals behaved amicably. The behavioral reactions shown by individual marmosets are related to territorial hostility and the behavior of juveniles to adults may aid assimilation of younger animals into new groups.
