Ecology and Evolution o. .has been added to your Cart. Cooperative breeders are species in which more than two individuals participate in raising young at a single nest.

Ecology and Evolution o. Although relatively rare, this behaviour entails dramatic forms of both cooperation and competition, and gives important insights into many areas including sexual selection and incest avoidance. This book will therefore be of particular interest to students and professionals interested in behaviour and ecology.

Walter D. Cooperative breeders are species in which more than a pair of individuals assist in the production of young. Cooperative breeding is found in only a few hundred bird species world-wide, and understanding this often strikingly altruistic behaviour has remained an important challenge in behavioural ecology for over 30 years.
