The authors supply a number of examples of direct (i.e. the objective of popularity is a conspecific) and oblique acceptance (i.e. acceptance of a competent proxy instead of somebody, resembling a den or a substrate) and talk about circumstances of widely used reputation (i.e. an animal recollects a conspecific yet can't inform what type it comes from or realize its identity). Class-level reputation (i.e. an animal assigns a conspecific to a suitable category of animals), and actual person acceptance (i.e. an animal either identifies and acknowledges a conspecific on somebody foundation) also are addressed.
