Fig. 3

Members of the KS alliance are shown in blue (# consortships since 2001), PD alliance in red (# consortships since 1996) and RR alliance in yellow (# consortships since 2002). Each second-order alliance was formerly greater in number (maximum alliance size of KS was 14 individuals, PD was 7 and RR was 7) but has subsequently diminished through member attrition. The total number of consortships recorded for each male is shown in parentheses.
