Quality of Interactions between Resident Females and Transfer Males

(A) Latency, in days, until a newly transferred male is first groomed by a female (left) or presented to by a female (right).

(B) Average number of adult female neighbors per scan (i.e., within 3 m; left) and average number of grooming bouts with females per 100 h of observation (right) for transfer males. Mean ± SEM. * and *** indicate p < 0.05 and p < 0.01, respectively, by unpaired t-test. Latency until first presented to by a female approached significance (p < 0.08). Data were derived from a total of ten different males and 17 different females in F93–96, and 31 different males and 21 different females in T93–98.
