Edge weight type: frequency

Total duration of data collection: 30days

Time resolution of data collection (within a day):

Time span of data collection (within a day): focal follow/ad libitum

Note: Networks represent grooming interaction or association between five social groups of baboons. Each network summarizes data collected within 30 days before and 90 days after each knockout.
