Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This edition is geared more explicitly toward use as a teaching text, with a brief 'how to use this book' section for students and teachers, a few 'reading questions' at the beginning of each chapter, and a glossary in the back. More importantly, this edition includes completely new chapters on ecological methods, kinship, and juvenility. There are also total rewrites of several chapters, including those on tool use and behavioral data collection methods,
and minor tweaks to other chapters, including welcome changes in terminology in the chapter on social systems and updates to the chapters in the second section based on newly published field studies. I found all of these changes to be improvements and think they make it a stronger volume than the first edition." -- The Quarterly Review of Biology
