Description

howler: One 17 by 17 symmetric matrix of frequencies. One 17 by 4 two mode binary matrix of monkeys by groups.

BACKGROUND These data on 17 mantled howler monkeys, Alouatta palliata, were collected by Froehlich and Thorington (1981) and by Gaulin (Sailer & Gaulin, 1984). The monkeys were assigned to "troops" by Froehlich and Thorington, and Gaulin reported the results of ad libidum "co-observations" of collections of individuals. Monkeys 12 and 26 were juveniles, monkey 9 was an infant and the others were all adults. Monkeys 5, 9, 13, 16, 21, 25 and 27 were males; the others were females.
