The present experiment had two major goals: to determine the social dominance structure among previously unacquainted adult squirrel monkeys of both sexes, and to examine the changes from nonsocial behavioral levels produced by social partners of differing sex and dominance status. Five male and five female squirrel monkeys, housed individually, were first given a series of nonsocial adaptation trials in a novel drinking situation. Their latencies of first drink and of accumulation of 15-sec. of drinking, as well as total drinking and locomotion frequencies and durations, were recorded during these trials. A series of social dominance trials, in which all 45 possible pairs of monkeys were observed, was then administered in the same drinking situation. During these social trials the previously adapted monkeys were scored under the condition of competition for a water incentive. The dominance status of each animal was determined by noting the monkey in each
