Genetic Analysis of the Social Structure in Wild Mountain Gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Knowledge of animals’ mating systems is a key element in understanding their natural history. Mating systems describe the ways in which animal societies are structured in relation to sexual behaviour and the manner in which males and females interact for the purpose of reproduction. Conflicting interests – males tend to go for quantity and female for quality - culminates in different reproductive strategies between the sexes.
