How can you use “allogrooming” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • As an example, animals which cooperate to remove ectoparasites from each other by allogrooming have formerly been thought to be in a Prisoner's Dilemma [ 31 32 ] . However, because ectoparasite burdens vary greatly among individuals (in European badgers, Meles meles , some individuals are recorded as having no ectoparasites while others can have over 100), the relative payoffs for different strategies and, therefore, the game individuals find themselves in, will depend on the relative differences between actors [ 33 ] . In the case of the badgers, ectoparasites carry lethal diseases, so coming into contact to engage in cooperative allogrooming carries the risk of further contamination, as well as the prospect of having one's own ectoparasites removed.
