This chapter examines the social organization of treeshrews. It describes their social relationships from the deployment of their home ranges, and the relative movements of radio-tagged and trapped individuals. The chapter explores territory formation and evaluates the ecological aspects of territoriality. It reveals that treeshrews are territorial within sexes, with males either monogamous or perhaps overlapping a second female.
