Title: Dominance Stability Accompanying the Reformation of Social Groups of Rats in a Semi-Netural Situation
Authors: Jun, Matthew
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: Like most mammals, rats are social creatures interacting and competing with others for food, space, and sexual priority. In communities of mammals which are limited by territorial boundaries, social structures or rank orders are formed (Grant, 1958). Although there have been a number of highly informative studies of within group dominance structures in field settings (eg. Sapolsky 1982, 1983, 1989), such field studies do not permit important features of experimental manipulation, nor is an adequate control group typically available.
