Dominance Hierarchies in Young Children
Edelman, Murray S.; Omark, Donald R.
Social Science Information, 12, 1, 103-110, Feb 73
This study uses the ethological approach of seeking species characteristics and phylogenetic continuities in an investigation of human behavior. Among primates a striking consistency is the presence of some form of dominance hierarchy in many species. The present study examines peer group dominance hierarchies as they are perceived by children in classrooms from nursery school through third grade. (Author)
