Homosexual behaviour is widespread throughout the animal kingdom. Homosexual Behaviour in Animals seeks to examine the evolutionary aspects of same-sex sexual interactions. With contributions on birds, dolphin, deer, bison and cats, as well as monkey and apes, including macaques, gorillas and bonobos, and a final chapter on human primates, this book covers our current knowledge in this area of sexology. It will appeal to graduate students and researchers in evolutionary biology, biological anthropology, zoology, evolutionary psychology and animal behaviour.
This book will appeal to graduate students and researchers in evolutionary biology, biological anthropology, zoology, evolutionary psychology, animal behaviour and anyone interested in the current state of knowledge in this area of behavioural studies.
Review of the hardback: 'For anyone interested in animal behaviour, this book is a valuable reference which brings together a collection of current research into homosexual behaviour in animals in one volume.' Biologist Review of the hardback: 'Sommer and Vasey have sharply steered the Darwinian study of homosexual behaviour out of its infancy and towards all the defining features of a mature science ... the book deserves to be widely read by researchers interested in ultimate functions of human and animal behaviour alike.' Journal of Evolutionary Psychology
