    Researchers based in the U. S. and Sweden who analyzed evolutionary change in groups of primates found the numbers of males lags behind females. The number of females in a group tends to be larger than the number of males; the more females there are the more males there will be, but only after a period, when the males have had time to catch up to the changing population. As mixed-sex, multi-male groups are common in more advanced primate societies (including humans), scientists say the study hi...
