ANTB22- Lecture 9: Prosimians
Lemur characteristics:
- males and females tend to have the same body size (sexually monomorphic)
- strict seasonal breeding
- cathemerality: both diurnal and nocturnal (awake during the day and night)
- female dominance: trait only shown by some of the lemur species
- targeted aggression: females attack other females, even their close relatives
Lemur reproduction:
- females can only mate when pregnancy is possible (only mate during ovulation)-
total hormonal control of mating (no non-conceptive mating)
- reproduction is controlled by photoperiod (number of hours of daylight in a 24 hour
period)
- in North America, reproduction is 6 months out of phase with the timing of
events in Madagascar
*female dominance definition: the ability of all adult females to consistently evoke
submissive behaviour from all males in dyadic agonistic interactions
female dominance depends on the sexual maturity of the female (only adult females
can be dominant)
Females do not become dominant until after their first breeding season
Adult females are dominant to males in all contexts: feeding, resting, mating, etc.
Other animals described as female dominant: hyenas- but sons of the alpha
female can be dominant over some group females
Females show submission to males as they approach estrus (not dominant in all
contexts)
Not true female dominance as in some lemurs
Bonobos- certain females can dominate males in some groups, but not in all groups
Sometimes the alpha animal of a bonobo group is female, but not always
Not true female dominance as in some lemurs
*explain why female dominance is not true in hyenas and bonobos on exam*

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
