Background The dispersal characteristics of wildlife species, particularly dispersal distance, disperser fitness and body-condition dependency, play an important role in shaping population genetic structure, inbreeding avoidance, and the spatial extent of a population [ 1 — 3 ]. Dispersal is also a critical component in the spread of wildlife diseases [ 4 ]. Diseases affect host dispersal through behavioural changes and decreased body condition [ 4 , 5 ]. In the case of predators, infection may occur through consumption of infected prey [ 4 ]. In this study, we conducted a population genetic analysis of the dispersal characteristics of lions Panthera leo in the Kruger National Park in relation to their fitness. Wildlife diseases, such as foot and mouth disease, anthrax, rift valley fever, brucellosis, feline immunodeficiency virus FIV and bovine tuberculosis BTB which occur in Kruger, are likely influenced by predator-prey interactions and animal dispersal [ 8 , 10 — 12 ]. BTB, which is now an endemic disease in Kruger, particularly among African buffalo Syncerus caffer [ 13 , 14 ], was first reported in lions in [ 15 ]. Although BTB-positive lions usually die within a few years, following infection [ 16 ], lion numbers do not seem to be significantly affected, at least not yet [ 8 , 11 ]. FIV is also endemic in the Kruger lion population with FIV-positivity being significantly related to sex males more likely to be FIV-positive , advanced age and low body condition [ 11 ]. The social organisation of lions is well known, consisting of prides of related adult females average genetic relatedness at half-sib level [ 17 , 18 ] and their dependent offspring, together with unrelated adult males. The home range of a pride is stable and may persist for generations [ 19 — 21 ]. Until recently, lions were believed to have a strict within-pride mating system, but recent studies have shown extra-group paternity in Etosha National Park Namibia and possibly also Selous Game Reserve Tanzania [ 17 , 18 ]. Male coalitions can take over a female pride and evict all previous males and females that are too young to conceive [ 19 , 22 — 24 ].

Behaviour, — Abstract The function of manes in lions has been a topic of scientific interest since Darwin suggested that it provides protection in intraspecific fights.

Humans also have unusual structural protections for the head, face and neck, areas that are especially accessible during intraspecies attack, and highly vulnerable to damage. One of these, the beard, consists of coarse hairs that grow indefinitely, but only for males, and only during and following puberty; suggesting that it, like the lion's mane, may serve as protection in intraspecies male fights. Such structural protections may reflect a specific combination of lethal weaponry and social life-style, particularly when these are developed so rapidly that they are not accompanied by the evolution of complex attack-inhibiting social behaviors.

Keywords: lion, mane, beard, aggression, social systems, target sites, infanticide, evolution Lion manes are obviously a sexually selected trait. Manes are restricted to males, contribute little to the lion's general economy of life, and apparently present a number of real costs that would otherwise make it a candidate for elimination by natural selection….. Still, given the interest that people have focused on lions over the last 30, years, it is remarkable that we do not know whether manes are the product of male—male contest, or female choice, or possibly of both Patterson, , p.

Aggression, Social Systems and Evolution In terms of phylogeny, aggression is among the oldest of evolved behavior patterns Blanchard and Blanchard, in press. Exemplars of aggression have been reported in animals without a central nervous system; in a host of invertebrates; and in each of the seven classes of vertebrates, including the most primitive; agnatha, hagfish and lampreys Malmqvist, There is an emerging consensus that one major function, i.

Wilson, , with the further provision that aggression typically occurs in the context of competition from conspecifics over such resources. Winning may be highly adaptive because it results in immediate or longer—term enhancement of access to resources that are important for that species Blanchard and Blanchard, ; Moynihan, Resources and their distribution are also major factors in the development of species-typical social systems Rubenstein, , of which within-species aggressive behaviors are one, important, component.

Some species such as mice are particularly opportunistic and may show rapid and dramatic changes in social structure in accord with habitat alterations Bronson, ; Gray and Hurst, , a flexibility that may stem in part from their long-term status as human commensals, with its strong requirement of rapid adjustment to host-initiated changes Blanchard et al. However, the ecological conditions under which most mammalian species have evolved are less variable than those associated with human habitations and human geographic movements, and the social systems evolving in most habitats appear also to be more conservative and resistant to change than are those of mice.

Evaluation of the rate of change in evolved characteristics of animals in response to important alterations in ecological conditions constitutes a difficult field of study, but some estimates may be obtained when a fossil record is available that permits information on relatively specific ecological changes.

As this example suggests, when ecological changes make some of the existing characteristics of species less adaptive than previously, the replacement of these by more adaptive characteristics can be a lengthy and variable process; moreover, maladaptive as well as adaptive aspects of the emerging behaviors may be relevant to the patterns that ultimately emerge. With complex behavior patterns such as those involved in social relationships an even longer time-frame might be needed than for venom resistance and other purely physiological adaptations.

However, following long-term exposure to diverse situations, even closely related species would be expected to show behavioral differences based on what is most adaptive in their particular habitats: Rubenstein , p. In contrast, Grevy's zebra Equus grevyi inhabit locales where food and water are widely dispersed and scarcer, such that females forage alone and must travel between feeding and watering areas.

In this species males form territories along the traveling routes, gaining breeding access to females that pass through or linger within the territory.

In both the harem and territorial social systems, zebra males attempt to control access to females in breeding condition, but the time-frame and the location of these efforts vary with the conditions under which these animals have evolved.
