investigate how group members of a cooperativelybreeding cichlid fish respond to simulated visitors, and whether a group member’s social status influenced their response to these visitors.
There are multiple ways in which visitors could inflict costs and these costs are likely to differ across individual
described as despotic, with weak tolerance levels among group members and well-differentiated relationships organised in a strong linear hierarchy (Archie et al., 2006 ; Bergstrom & Fedigan, 2013 ). This type of hierarchy has been described in cooperativelybreeding invertebrate societies (Cronin & Field
