My PhD research focused on understanding the selective mechanisms underlying the maintenance of sexual dimorphism in body mass and canine size in rhesus macaques. I investigated:
1) the function of canine teeth and body size as signals and/or weapons,
2) how wound risk relates to male reproductive strategies, and
3) age-specific selection on male body mass.
