The effects of intergroup conflict on social networks in banded mongooses in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda, 2016-2017

This dataset comprises measurements of grooming and aggressive interactions in banded mongooses in response to simulated intergroup conflict, collected from a wild population of banded mongooses on the Mweya Peninsula, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda between 2016-2017. We experimentally simulated conflict between rival social groups of banded mongooses and recorded observations of grooming and aggression between individuals in the focal group. These data were collected to examine changes in social networks in the face of intergroup conflict.
