About this book

For several decades, Yamagishi and his associates have studied the ecological and social behaviour of the rufous vanga, a unique species of bird in Madagascar. In this volume the team summarizes the findings of its long-term research, with specific observations about cooperative breeding, sex ratio manipulation, foraging and helper behavior. The authors demonstrate the implications of the study for theories of evolution, genetic inheritance and group formation.
