A Corrigendum on
Dynamics of Intersexual Dominance and Adult Sex- Ratio in Wild Vervet Monkeys

by Hemelrijk, C. K., Wubs, M., Gort, G., Botting, J., and van de Waal, E. (2020). Front. Psychol. 11:839. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2020.00839

In the original article, there was a mistake in Table 1 as published. The values for the female dominance (index) and dominance ranking from high to low of adults for all group-year points in Mawana were incorrect, apart from in Baie Dankie 2013 where only the ranking of adults was incorrect and in Noha 2011 where all information was correct. The number of females was incorrect in Kubu 2017 and so was the proportion of males; in Noha 2012 the number of males was incorrect and therefore the proportion of males was incorrect. Data on Baie Dankie 2014 were added. Data on Noha 2015 are omitted. The corrected Table 1 appears below.


Table 1. Information on the reserve, the group-name, number of adults of each sex, male proportion, female dominance, and individual rankings of both sexes per group per year. * means the adjacent individuals have the same average dominance index, ADI.

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
