A reprint of a classical work in the Princeton Legacy Library. Originally published in 1987.
Seeking common principles of social evolution in different taxonomic groups, the contributors to Ecological Aspects of Social Evolution discuss eighteen groups of birds and mammals for which long-term field studies have been carried out. They examine how social organization is shaped by the interaction between proximate ecological pressures and culture – the social traditions already in place and shaped by local and phylogenetic history.
