Is there a hierarchy in most animal populations?

    Yes, for the most part.  Dominance hierarchies occur in most social animal species that usually live in groups, including primates.  Fish, birds, and mammals have been closely studied to determine a dominant hierarchy.  Dominance hierarchies can be what’s called linear structures, which is a result from the physical differences among individuals in a group in relation to their access to resources. They are also influenced by the complex social interactions among individuals in the group.
