Female philopatric species and female dispersal species

Social structure also greatly affects the life cycles of primates. In recent years, the relationship between female dispersal patterns and life cycle has attracted particular attention.

Primates that form groups are divided into a “female philopatric species,” in which the females remain in the natal group throughout their lifetime, as with Japanese macaques or capuchin monkeys, and “female dispersal species,” such as apes and spider monkeys, in which the females leave their natal groups after maturation.
