  • LANGUR MONKEY MOTHER LOSS - PROFILE ANALYSIS WITH MULTIVARIATE-ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE FOR SEPARATION SUBJECTS AND CONTROLS FOLIA PRIMATOLOGICA DOLHINOW, P., Murphy, G. 1983; 40 (3): 181-196

    Abstract:

    We present an analysis of observational data on the behavior profiles for two groups of infant langur monkeys (Presbytis entellus): one that had experienced mother loss, and the other, a control group, that had not undergone mother loss. Observations were analyzed in three 2-week time periods: 2 preseparation, 2 separation, and 2 postseparation periods for both groups. The profile analysis application of the multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) was employed to test the hypothesis that the two groups had similar patterns of change across time. For each group a vector of 5 difference scores was computed; then MANOVA was used to test the similarity of the mean vectors of difference scores for the two groups. Profiles for the separation and control infants were significantly different for some behaviors, and changes between some time periods were also significant.
