This chapter reviews current knowledge about maternal influences on offspring growth, reproduction, and behavior in nonhuman primates, particularly Old World monkeys. It describes the process by which dominance rank is acquired and transmitted across generations in cercopithecine monkeys and discusses the findings of studies which investigated the influence of maternal dominance and/or body condition on offspring sex ratios at birth. This chapter also examines maternal influences on offspring behavior and physiology, including offspring social and mating preferences, reactivity to the environment and parental behavior.

Keywords:   maternal influence, offspring growth, behavior, Old World monkeys, dominance rank, maternal dominance, offspring sex ratios, mating preferences, parental behavior, reactivity
