The association between rank and reproductive success of male rhesus monkeys



The association between rank and reproductive success of male rhesus monkeys



American Journal of Primatology 1(1): 83-90



The paternity of 202 of 220 offspring of rhesus monkeys housed in 6 separate half-acre field cages at the California Primate Research Center was determined by genetic marker techniques. Reproductive success of the adult males was statistically significantly correlated (r = 0.76, P < 0.0005) with rank. Marked systematic changes in reproductive success were observed for 2 adult males during the 3 yr covered by this study. Changes in rank position typically follow, rather than precede, changes in reproductive success.
