Resumen

El agonismo frecuentemente se asoció con el incremento distanciamiento interindividual en grupos sociales, pero las evidencias indican que los individuos se afilian después de una disputa (“se reconcilian”). Las conductas post-agonistas se describieron en un grupo de monos capuchinos en cautiverio y se calculó la tendencia conciliatoria (TC) utilizando el método pareado PC-CP (Post-Conflicto – Control Pareado); aquí PA-CP (Post-Agonismo – Control Pareado). Los machos iniciaron más interacciones agonistas hacia las hembras que hacia otros machos, mientras que las hembras evitaron dirigirlas a los machos. Interesantemente, las hembras iniciaron más reconciliaciones que los machos tanto hacia machos (TC: 0,20-0,42) como hacia hembras (TC: 0.24-0.25). Globalmente, la TC del grupo varió entre 0,127 y 0,198. Comparamos nuestros resultados con los de otros capuchinos y proponemos que la reconciliación podría no ser fundamental en el mantenimiento de la cohesión social en Cebidae; no obstante, debido al tamaño de nuestra muestra, esta conclusión es preliminar.
