Friendship In Male And Female Baboons

Laelaps has an interesting post on friendship in male and female baboons. Check out the post, "You just call out my name...": Friendships in Male and Female Baboons. Insightful hypotheses explaining the friendship between male and female baboon. Would love to read more papers and data on this.

There's a lot of fascinating lit out there on male-female friendships in baboons--my faves are the endocrinology studies that look at how friendship affects glucocorticoids...
