Sample text

The same mature males have coexisted in multimale groups for periods of over 10 years, indicating that multimale groups are not simply a temporary situation prior to male dispersal upon reaching maturity. Less than half (n = 4) of all males that reached maturity in heterosexual groups (n = 11) emigrated (Robbins, 1995; Watts, 2000). All males who were members of an all-male group (Peanut’s Group) emigrated (n = 12) or died within the group (n = 1). Given the variation in social units, does one particular group type (one-male or multimale) confer an advantage to male mountain gorillas at different stages of their life?

Social relationships Male–male relationships In general, male primates form much weaker social relationships with one another than females do with each other or with males, and mountain gorillas are no exception (van Hooff & van Schaik, 1992, 1994; Kappeler, 2000). This is primarily because males compete for access to females, a resource that is not easily divided, compared to competition for access to 36 Martha M. Robbins food resources which influences female–female social relationships. Male philopatry may encourage relationships among male relatives, but kinship is neither a prerequisite for nor a guarantee that strong male–male relationships will form (van Hooff & van Schaik, 1994; Kappeler, 2000).
