To inspire additional development during this vital box, this quantity offers new insights on evolution of girl dispersal by means of describing elements influencing diversifications within the dispersal trend throughout primates and a speculation for the formation of human households from the views of girl lifestyles background.

In this study, F11 was first observed alone in January of 2000 (the beginning of Period 1) in the peripheral area of MB-2 home range. When she was first observed, she was still young, estimated to be a 6–7 years old subadult. She was often found alone on the periphery of the group, but could be found easily because she often repeatedly made long-loud calls. During Period 1, she began to spend time with other females, but was often the target of aggression. The aggression towards F11 often took place at feeding trees, especially at palms such as Astrocaryum chambira and Oenocarpus bataua.

Similar patterns were also found in A. geoffroyi (Aureli et al. 2008; Slater et al. 2009). However, because no information about kinship was available in these studies, it is still unknown how mother–son relationships differ from those of other male–female dyads. In chimpanzees in Mahale, Tanzania, orphaned chimpanzees’ sons die younger than expected even if they lose their mothers after weaning (Nakamura et al. 2013), which suggests that longitudinal but indirect maternal investment continues after weaning and is vital to the survival of sons.
