Kin recognition, the ability to identify and respond differentially to one's genetic relatives, is one of the fastest growing and most exciting areas of ethology. Dr Hepper has brought together leading researchers in the field to create a thought-provoking and critical analysis of our current knowledge of the phenomenon, with particular emphasis on the underlying processes involved, and their significance for the evolution of social behaviour. Students of animal behaviour and evolutionary biology will find this book an invaluable source of information and ideas.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"...a series of outstanding articles that examine how animals are able to recognize their kin....important for those professionals and graduate students interested in animal behavior." Choice
"...extremely worthwhile. It is a must for kin recognition researchers, and it should also appeal to students of human and nonhuman behavior." George J. Gamboa, BioScience
"...will be of great value to both investigators of kin recognition, and to the author or authors who produce the first complete synthesis of this field." Andrew Cockburn, Quarterly Review of Biology
"...Hepper's volume contains many cautionary admonitions that primatologists would do well to heed." Donald Stone Sade, Iinternational Journal of Primatology
