Abstract

In the report "Selection of social partners as a function of peer contact during rearing" by C. L. Pratt and G. P. Sackett (3 Mar., p. 1133), the third sentence of the first paragraph should read as follows: "Monkeys reared in isolation tend to withdraw from other animals and huddle by themselves in social situations. If such animals prefer each other over more normal monkeys, they may not be effectively exposed to the stimuli which lead to some degree of social adjustment."
