Product Details

As new hardcover in dust jacket. The author unravels the basis of the cooperation observed, and explains how a system involving apparent altruism is maintained by natural selection and presents new data on the ostrich communal nesting system, in which several females lay in one female's nest, with only one female and the male doing all the work. Based on three seasons of study in Tsavo West National Park in Kenya.
