Ecology and Evolution of Cooperative Breeding in Birds

Author: Walter D. Koenig, Janis L. Dickinson (eds)

Published: 2004-06-01

Publisher's Description:

Cooperative breeders are species in which more than two individuals participate in raising young at a single nest. Although relatively rare, this behavior entails dramatic forms of cooperation and competition, and provides important insights into many areas, including sexual selection, incest avoidance and other subjects. This book will be of interest to students and professionals interested in bird behavior and ecology.
