We know a great deal about the role the environment plays in organizing primate social systems and in shaping reproductive success and survival. But how do primate life histories affect social systems and behaviour? Does the baboon's reproductive pattern, for example, play a role in the organization of baboon troops? Does chimpanzee maturation factor into the formation of bands and marauding males? Exploring these issues and many others, the contributors to "Primate Life Histories" provide 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. The first collection of its kind, this book should interest a wide range of researchers, from anthropologists and evolutionary biologists to psychologists and ecologists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The contributors present a broad synthesis of current research, emphasizing a variety of approaches and building a solid foundation for future investigations. This is a rich volume that is relevant not just to primatology but also to behavioral ecology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and psychology."
