Cooperative breeding in mammals.

Cooperative breeding in mammals. Nancy G. Solomon, Jeffery A. French.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, (2007. reprint]. Octavo, paperback, line drawings, other illustrations.

Cooperative breeding refers to a social system in which individuals other than the parents provide care for the offspring. Since individuals delay breeding and invest in the offspring of others, cooperative breeding poses a challenge to a Darwinian explanation of the evolution of social behaviour. The contributors to this book explore the evolutionary, ecological, behavioural and physiological basis of cooperative breeding in mammals. The book contains a collection of chapters by the leading researchers in the field of mammalian cooperative breeding. Also available in hardcover [stock id 9915].
