A Statistical Analysis of the Social Behavior of the Male Stumptail Macaque(Macaca arctoides)
Figure 4. Flow chart of within-animal sequences for dominant monkeys. Page 15
within-animal sequences - dominant

All of the significantly nonrandom, within- animal sequences of acts and postures for dominants occurring more than twice are shown (See Table III). Transitions from one act or posture to another are shown as straight arrows, and repetitions of the same one are shown as reflexive arrows. Abbreviations may be found in Table I. Also illustrated in this figure are the associated vocalizations and facial expressions listed in Table II; they have been illustrated by large-dashed circles around the acts and postures with which they were associated. Note that the facial expressions of lip smacking and the teeth chattering face were associated with the entire complex of acts and postures related to sexual behavior.
