Primates are for the most part intensely social, and §dedicate large proportions of their time budgets to §servicing social relationships through grooming. §Conflicting arguments have been proposed to explain §the limits shown in group size; is it a restriction §in the brain capacity of females to keep track of §all their relationships, or could it be an §ecologicaly imposed limit in the time available to §socially interact and build relationships? Using §methods taken from social network analysis, this §study attempts to uncouple these two explanations by §examining how each affects aspects of group §structure and network coherence. A cross species §examination suggests that group size is determined §by a combination of ecological factors and cognitive §ability. Most network measures were influenced only §by group size or the size of grooming clans implying §that the causal pathways determining group size do §not originate with the ability of individual females §to groom each other, but that female grooming §decisions are a consequence of the size of the clans §formed and therefore ultimately a consequence of §group size.
