In this long-awaited book, Stuart Altmann presents the results of one of the most intensive investigations ever carried out on foraging behaviour and its consequences for survival and reproduction. Perhaps the most striking result of the ten year study is that the baboon's subsequent survival and reproductive success could be accurately predicted from what they had eaten as yearlings. Those that had energy intakes closest to the optimum and protein intakes farthest above their requirements were most liekly to survive to adulthood and to successfully produce offspring.
