The nurture of nature: Social, developmental, and environmental controls of aggression

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (3):384-385 (1998)
Abstract
Evidence from many species suggests that social, developmental, and cognitive variables are important influences on aggression. Few direct activational or organizational effects of hormones on aggression and dominance are found in nonhuman primates. Female aggression and dominance are relatively frequent and occur with low testosterone levels. Social, cultural, and developmental mechanisms have more important influences on dominance and aggression than hormones.
