Folia Primatologica (FOLIA PRIMATOL )
Recognizing that research in human biology must be founded on a comparative knowledge of our closest relatives, this journal is the natural scientistís ideal means of access to the best of current primate research. ëFolia Primatologicaí covers fields as diverse as molecular biology and social behaviour, and features articles on ecology, conservation, palaeontology, systematics and functional anatomy. In-depth articles and invited reviews are contributed by the worldís leading primatologists. A ëBrief Reportsí section is recognised as the method of choice for rapid announcements of newly identified species. In addition, special issues provide rapid peer-reviewed publication of conference proceedings. ëFolia Primatologicaí is one of the top-rated primatology publications and is acknowledged worldwide as a high-impact core journal for primatologists, zoologists and anthropologists.

ABSTRACT: Following current socio-ecological hypotheses, the social organisation of a species is mainly determined by resource quality and distribution. In the case of Microcebus spp., a taxon-specific socio-ecological model was formulated earlier to explain their variable social organisation. The aim of this study was to test predictions from this model in Goodman's mouse lemur based on a data set from animals living in the semi-free colony of Zurich Zoo. During a 2-month study, we observed 5 females and 5 males using radiotelemetry. We collected data on space use and social behaviour, on sleeping sites and on sleeping group composition. Predictions were only partly confirmed. As expected, Goodman's mouse lemurs were solitary foragers with an increased level of sociality due to crowding effects at the feeding stations. In contrast to the prediction, females and males formed unisexual sleeping groups, which were stable in females and of a fission-fusion type in males. Whereas the formation of sleeping groups by both sexes may be triggered by thermoregulatory benefits, the formation of unisexual sleeping groups may result from divergent interests of the sexes. We conclude that the existing model for the evolution of mouse lemur social organisation needs to be refined.Folia Primatologica 01/2013; 84:32-48.

ABSTRACT: Allogrooming is a behavioural pattern in which an animal grooms the fur or skin of another animal of the same species. In primates, this behaviour has gone beyond the mere function of cleaning and hygiene as it serves to establish new relationships, strengthen family ties, reinforce social structures or even solve the conflicts arisen within the group members. Given its important social role, knowledge of the time spent by animals practicing allogrooming and their directionality is essential to evaluate basic social aspects in a group, such as social structure or dominance hierarchies. The study of allogrooming is usually carried out by focal animal sampling which provides data on the duration of each episode of grooming, the identity of the animals involved and the directionality of the interaction. This observational protocol provides fairly accurate estimates for allogrooming but as it cannot be applied simultaneously to all members of the group, it is time consuming and requires prolonged observation periods. Our goal was to test whether it would be possible to obtain estimates of allogrooming equally accurate through scan sampling, an alternative protocol that allows the observer to record data from several animals simultaneously. Thus, we compared data collected by two observers that recorded simultaneously the allogrooming behaviour of a group of six chimpanzees (2 males and 4 females) by means of both observational protocols: focal animal sampling and scan sampling. The study was carried out at the zoo Bioparc (Valencia, Spain) in July and November 2011. We gathered 80 hours of observation grouped into two periods of 10 days each. Our results show that both methods produce similar estimates for the allogrooming exchanged within the group.Folia Primatologica 01/2013; 84(3-5):282.
