Social dominance, seasonal movements, and spatial segregation in African elephants: a contribution to conservation behavior

Abstract:

The structure of dominance relationships among individuals in a populationis known to influence their fitness, access to resources, risk of predation, and even energy budgets. Recent advances in global positioning system radio telemetry provide data to evaluate the influence of social relationships on population spatial structure and ranging tactics. Using current models of socio-ecology as a framework, we explore the spatial behaviors relating to the maintenance of transitive (i.e., linear) ...
