Data and code associated with journal article Lee, AEG & Cowlishaw, G (2017) Switching spatial scale reveals dominance-dependent social foraging tactics in a wild primate. PeerJ

Abstract:

When foraging in a social group, individuals are faced with the choice of sampling their environment directly or exploiting the discoveries of others. The evolutionary dynamics of this trade-off have been explored mathematically through the producer-scrounger game, which has highlighted socially exploitative behaviours as a major potential cost of group living. However, our understanding of the tight interplay that can exist between social dominance and scrounging behaviour is limited. To dat...
