One of the researchers, Paula Stockley, said that females compete for resources needed to survive and reproduce, and for preferred mates.

Although female aggression takes diverse forms, under most circumstances relatively low-risk competitive strategies are favoured, the study found.

The study is published in the journal of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
