Abstract Reconciliation, defined as a friendly reunion between former opponents shortly after an aggressive encounter, is common in the stumptail macaque (Macaca arctoides) but rare in the rhesus macaque (M. mulatta). Juveniles of the two species were cohoused for 5 months, after which they were observed with conspecifics only.

In this book, world authorities on macaques interpret research and present syntheses of many aspects of macaque ecology, evolution, behaviour and conservation. This book will prove to be the definitive synthesis of the subject for all those interested in.

Macaques have a variety of facial expressions which they use to communicate with conspecifics, composed of movements of the ears, brow, eyes and mouth from the neutral state. 3 Facial expressions can be used by laboratory staff to infer the attention, intention and internal state of animals.

However, the purpose of all macaque facial expressions is not yet fully understood. A statistical analysis of the social behavior of the male stumptail macaque (Macaca arctoides). Sexual interference behavior (the phenomenon of intervening with the matings of others) appears selfish in that its primary function seems to be that of improving one's reproductive fitness relative to others.

In stumptail macaques (Macaca arctoides), interference may be spiteful, and may contribute to the receipt of a return benefit.

This is. Stump-tailed macaques are polygynandrous (promiscuous), which means that both males and females have multiple mates during the mating season.

These animals breed in October and November. Females give birth to a single infant every 2 years. The gestation period last around days.

Behaviour ():   The sexual behavior of stumptail macaques (Macaca arctoides) provides a useful experimental animal model because it resembles human sexual behavior more than that of many other nonhuman primates, as shown for example by the minor influence of season and menstrual cycle on sexual activity (Linnankoski et al., ).

One of the most common visual behaviors among stump-tailed macaques is teeth chattering. A low-ranking monkey often chatters his teeth towards a higher ranking individual. It is believed that this behavior promotes group harmony, as it signifies that everyone within the group knows his or her rightful place within the hierarchy.

Contrary to previous studies, these results suggest that stumptail macaque sexual behavior can be influenced by hormones but this influence is modulated by. Cognitive Processes of Nonhuman Primates covers the proceedings of the Sixth Annual Symposium on Cognition, held at Carnegie-Mellon University on March 26 The symposium focuses on the status of research dealing with complex behavioral processes of monkeys and apes, providing insights into complex behavior of human and nonhuman primates.

The stumptail macaques of China The stumptail macaques of China Fooden, Jack; Guoqiang, Quan; Zongren, Wang; Yingxiang, Wang The stumptail macaque species Macaca thibetana and Macaca arctoides replace one another from north to south in subtropical and tropical China.

These species differ in external and cranial characters. This study reports the first experimental exploration of possible contagious yawning in monkeys. Twenty-two stumptail macaques (Macaca arctoides) were presented with video clips of either yawns or control mouth movements by a group level, monkeys yawned significantly more often during and just after the yawn tape than the control tape.

Recordings were made of contact-location vocalizations and behaviors of six troop-living juvenile stumptail macaques. Quantitative analysis of spectrograms distinguished thirteen of the fifteen pairs of animals and led to construction of a "profile" of distinctive.

Behavior / Ecology. Stump-tailed macaques live in groups of up to 60 members (2). They maintain a dominance hierarchy where fights do occur, but they often reconcile after a conflict (4). The stump-tailed macaque is considered more peaceful and egalitarian than other macaque species (2).

The social behavior of male stumptail macaques was analyzed in terms of behavioral sequences recorded during paired encounters in a large test cage.

Recurrent patterns of behavioral sequences were sought and used to hypothesize the structure of motivational systems of social behavior as has been done previously for other species. In addition to.

Stump-tailed macaques live in groups of up to 60 in­di­vid­u­als con­sist­ing of adult males, fe­males, and young. Fe­males are philopatric and males leave after sex­ual ma­tu­rity.

They are hi­er­ar­chi­cal, with rank being re­in­forced through phys­i­cal con­tact such as bit­ing and slap­ping. The aim of this study was the evaluation of the influence of the EE in the behavioral variables in a colony of 24 stumptail macaques (Macaca arctoides macaca arctoides Subject Category: Organism Names see more details).

Our hypothesis is that the application of this program will reduce aggression, stereotypes and coprophilia behaviors and, at.

Stumptail macaques of this population were less tolerant than predicted based on previous studies on captive groups: Rates of spatial proximity, affiliation, and aggression were low, most males directed affiliative behavior toward higher-ranking males, and conflicts were generally of low intensity and relatively asymmetrical.The stump-tailed macaque (Macaca arctoides), also called the bear macaque, is a species of macaque found in South India, it is found in south of the Brahmaputra River, in the northeastern part of the country.

Its range in India extends from Assam and Meghalaya to eastern Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura.In this book, world authorities on macaques interpret recent research and present up-to-date syntheses of many aspects of macaque ecology, evolution, behavior and conservation.
