About this book

Provides the first systematic attempt to understand how primate life histories influence behaviour and vice versa. Topics covered include how primate life histories interact with diverse social structures; how the slow maturation of primates affects the behaviour of both the young and their adult caregivers; and the reciprocal relationships between large brains and increased social and behavioural complexity.
