About this book

The handicap principle, first proposed by Zahavi in the early 1980s, has in the last few years become widely accepted as a central unifying theory explaining many previously baffling aspects of animal signalling and communication. This book explores the wide-ranging implications of the principle, for predator-prey relations, coalitions and alliances, and the persistance of altruism.
