About this book

Infanticide is an extremely complex behavioural pattern that occurs throughout the animal kingdom. This work considers infanticide in different mammals such as humans, primates, pinnipeds, lions, dwarf mongooses and prairie dogs, and in non-mammals including insects and birds. It also views the topic in different environmental conditions such as the natural habitat of an animal and animals kept in laboratory conditions.
