The role of leader in polygynous species has been solely attributed to the male for some time, but recent studies have shown decision making to be distributed within the group. However, the specific reproductive strategy and behavioural repertoire of males in polygynous species such as horses may...

Abstract

In species that move in cohesive groups, animals generally reach decisions through socially distributed processes, and individual knowledge is expected to influence collective decision making. Pooling of information should not be considered a general rule, however, since conflicts of interest may...

When living in social groups, horses differ among them in dominance rank and degree of social centrality (i.e. more or less close to other group members). However, the impact of inter-individual variability remains poorly considered in the study of sociality. We conducted a study to characterize...

Previous research on the Assateague horses found that high-ranking females had more surviving offspring than low-ranking females.
