About this item

Written by one of the world's leading behavioural ecologists, Mammal Societies provides a comprehensive review of social behaviour and social organisation in mammals. The book explores the impact of the social and physical environments on the selection pressures operating on both sexes and on the evolution of behavioural, physiological and anatomical adaptations. Concluding chapters provide an introduction to equivalent studies of humans and explore the contrasts and similarities that exist between us and other mammals. Illustrated in full colour throughout, the chapters of the book address male and female behaviours separately and cover:

contrasts on sociality

parental care


reproductive competition

social relationships


mate choice

Mammal Societies provides a synthesis of our understanding of the social organisation of mammals and is destined to become a core text for zoologists, evolutionary biologists and primatologists, as well as ecologists, psychologists, sociologists and anthropologists.
