Abstract

This paper describes male-female dyadic social relationships in C. capucinus, detailing the types of costs and benefits exchanged between the sexes. A single group of wild white-faced capuchin monkeys (Cebus capucinus) was studied in Lomas Barbudal Biological Reserve, Costa Rica, for 24 months. A total of 953 hours of focal animal data were collected on 4 adult males and 6 adult females. The patterning of social interactions was studied in an attempt to assess the outcome of disputes between males and females. In dyadic interactions, females avoided and cowered to males roughly 50 times more often than males avoided or cowered to females. Females responded fearfully to 12% of males' neutral approaches, whereas males never responded fearfully to females' neutral approaches. Males supplanted
