Table 3.

Results of Spearman correlation tests for the relationship between the interaction rate of alpha individuals (Iα) and triad frequencies. p-values shown are Bonferroni-corrected values. ‘Complete dataset’ and ‘pseudo-replication test’ as with table 1. In all cases, the sample sizes for double-dominant, double-subordinate and pass-along triads exclude groups in which all dyadic relations are observed because these three triads only exist in incomplete networks.
