    • Abstract


      Non-aggressive social behaviour rhythms ofBandicota bengalensis were studied in the laboratory. The species exhibited 95% rhythmicity for social behaviour but the rhythms were uni- or bimodal and were influenced by the number and sex of interacting conspecifics. Peaks occurred at 0900 and 1800 hr. Males were more socially active than females.
