macaque2: One 30 by 30 matrix of dominance encounters.
BACKGROUND This matrix is built from experimental data on the 30 adult members (5 males and 25 females) of a community of macaque monkeys (Macaca mulatta) housed at the Wisconsin Regional Primate Center in Madison. The monkeys were deprived of water and then observations of which monkey got access to a drinking fountain were made.
The data were converted into an index of consistency in linear dominance rankings for six month-long experimental periods. The index is not clearly presented. Individuals are identified with gender tags; Numbers are males, letters are females.
