Ecology and evolution of cooperative breeding in birds.

Ecology and evolution of cooperative breeding in birds. Walter Koenig, Janis Dickinson.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2004. Small quarto, paperback, text illustrations.

Cooperative breeders are species in which more than a pair of individuals assist in the production of young. Cooperative breeding is found in only a few hundred bird species world-wide, and understanding this often strikingly altruistic behaviour has remained an important challenge in behavioural ecology for over 30 years. This book highlights the theoretical, empirical and technical advances that have taken place in the field of cooperative breeding research since the publication of the seminal work Cooperative Breeding in Birds: Long-term Studies of Behaviour and Ecology. Also available in hardcover.
