The interrelationships among individuals in gregarious species can have profound effects on the animals' behavior, physiology, and even health. Captive housing should address the social needs of such species because failure to do so can result in the development and expression of abnormal behavior. ...

In this review studies of vertebrate mating systems in which molecular techniques have been used to reveal the "genetic mating system", often yielding results that disagreed with generally accepted hypotheses about monogamy and polygyny, are discussed. Studies of social groups in which molecular...
