    How to use "Monogynous" in context?

    Interestingly, the word "monogynous" was first coined in 1818 by the French naturalist Georges Cuvier. Cuvier used the word to describe a type of animal habitually living alone and breeding exclusively with itself. To the modern mind, the term may seem outdated, but it is still used in some scientific circles to describe species, such as certain primates, that exhibit this behavior.

    While monogynous animals may seem quite solitary, they are not actually that different from other animals in the animal kingdom. In fact, they are just as likely to socialize with others as any other creature.
