De la notion de genre appliquée au monde animal

Abstract : The social life of animals is made of cooperation and conflicts of interest in which the sex of individuals plays a fundamental role. Yet the distinction between males and females does not by itself suffice in making sense of the distribution of the different social roles in a given species. Such is what research on animal parental activity, hierarchical status, sexual orientation and choice of partners tends to show. In the human realm, these issues are the subject of “gender studies.” Hence it does not appear illegitimate that the concepts from this field may also be applied to animals, as this article proceeds to argue.
