Individual, monthwise data on the occurrence of injury in Nepal gray langurs (Semnopithecus schistaceus) and Phayre's leaf monkeys (Trachypithecus phayrei crepusculus). For each species two data sets are provided (i) adult-subadult individuals including information on absence-presence of injury, group, sex, age category, mating season, reproductive state (females only), number of same-sexed competitors, number of observation days and (ii) immature individuals including absence-presence of injury, sex, age, group, number of observation days. Predictions tested and results can be found in Feder JA, Lu A, Koenig A, Borries C. The costs of competition: Injury patters in two Asian colobine monkeys, to appear in the journal Behavioral Ecology.
