Abstract

The authors wish to note the following: “We wish to notify readers that a data entry error was detected in the primate body mass data used in our study. A reanalysis of the corrected dataset has been conducted and the principal findings remain robust, with the exception of three: We no longer find support for a positive relationship between social learning and relative brain size, between relative brain size and lifespan, and between relative brain size and group size (see Table 1). The results of all reanalysed models including body mass, which include some further minor differences between the original and corrected analyses, are given in Table 2. Our corrected dataset is available from the DataDryad repository (https://datadryad.org/resource/doi:10.5061/dryad.jb22k75/1). Readers are encouraged to contact the authors for discussion of how these differences affect interpretation.” (Table Presented).
