  • Pasternak, Graham M (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Psychology, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Psychology, 2011)
    Narrow riparian woodlands along non-perennial streams have made it possible for vervet monkeys to penetrate the semi-arid karoo ecosystem of South Africa, while artificial water points have more recently allowed these ...
  • McDougall, Petra L; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Psychology, c2010Arts and ScienceDepartment of Psychology, 2010)
    Self-directed behaviours (SDB) were recorded as a behavioural indicator of arousal in free-ranging vervet monkeys (Chlorocebus aethiops) inhabiting the Klein Karoo of South Africa. Measurement of SDB allowed for changes ...
  • Takahashi, April D. (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Psychology, c2012Arts and ScienceDepartment of Psychology, 2012)
    This thesis offers an alternative to the conventional ‘social intelligence’ hypothesis: that the complexity of primate group emerges from dynamic, short term variation in partner availability and quality and that primate ...

    I studied free-ranging vervet monkeys (Chlorocebus aethiops) in South Africa using focal animal sampling to test current theories of reproduction and maternal investment. Mothers cope with the energetic costs of lactation ...

    The permanent coresidence of males within a troop is unusual but occurs in vervet monkeys. Several hypotheses have been projected to explain the coexistence of male vervets (predation risk, breeding season length) but these ...
