Abstract

Genealogical data for 9 groups representing 4 species of Macaca were analyzed. The intensity of selection between matrilineages constitutes a substantial fraction of the total intensity of selection within macaque groups, which suggests that kin selection may play an important role in the evolution of social behavior in the genus.-from Author
