Dominance tests were conducted with male rhesus monkeys from a colony of 28 Ss. The following conclusions seem to be warranted 1 differential early rearing has no effect upon later dominance status 2 there were virtually no biochemical differences between the least and most dominant monkeys in the colony 3 previously achieved dominance status was important in the formation of a new hierarchy 4 cage-mates always seem to act in concert and 5 a group-effect was seen to be operating, much like the relationship among feral monkeys, usually referred to as territory or home range.
