Femalesresponses to advertisement calls (A) and alarm calls (B) from their fathers and unrelated males. A: Component 2 showed that nine of 10 females paid more attention to the advertisement calls of the unrelated (control) males than to calls from their fathers. High values on component 2 correlated with looking towards the speaker faster, approaching the speaker sooner, and spending more time near the speaker. B: Component 2 did not show a significant difference between responses to alarm calls from fathers and unrelated males. High values on component 2 correlated with approaching the speaker sooner and spending more time near the speaker. See Table 2 and Additional file 2 for the quartiles of each behavioral variable and their loadings on the components.
