Summary
"In this book, case studies and reviews confirm the adaptive nature of infanticide in males in primates and other animals, and help to predict which species should be vulnerable to it. Much of the book is devoted to exploring the evolutionary consequences of the threat of infanticide by males for social and reproductive behavior and physiology. Written for graduate students and researchers in animal behavior, behavioral ecology, biological anthropology and social psychology, this book shows that social systems are shaped not only be ecological pressures but also by social pressures such as infanticide risk."--Jacket
