5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Because of the prevalence of polygyny, and associated tendency for males to disperse as they reach maturity, adult males are generally not related to other adults in the group. Males leave before they reach the age of maturity (sexually) and fathers leave before their daughters reach the age of maturity
  2. most mammalian social systems are arrange matrilinearlly; mothers and their offspring may stay together and groups are this composed of mothers, daughters, aunts, and nieces

    inbreeding strategy in which
    matings between close relatives
    are avoided, but matings with

    Spermophilus beldingi
    more distant relatives are favored.
