Kinship and Behavior in Primates

by

Kinship and Behavior in Primates Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book presents a series of review chapters on the various aspects of primate kinship and behavior, as a fundamental reference for students and professionals interested in primate behavior, ecology and evolution. The relatively new molecular data allow one to assess directly degrees of genetic relatedness and kinship relations between individuals, and a considerable body of data on intergroup variation, based on experimental studies in both free-ranging and captive groups has accumulated, allowing a rather full and satisfying reconsideration of this whole broad area of research. The book should be of considerable interest to students of social evolution and behavioral ecology.

Book News Annotation:

Twenty-five international academics and researchers contribute 20 chapters reviewing current knowledge about the study of kinship and behavior in primates, and providing a "collective advanced textbook" on the topic for students and scholars. Coverage includes methodological advances in determining kin relationships; kin composition based on ecological determinants, population genetics, and demography; the diversity of effects of kinship on behavior; proximate and functional processes leading to kin bias; the evolutionary origins of human kinship; and future research directions.
