Product Details

Drawing on their twelve-year field study, the Browns investigate twenty-six social and ecological costs and benefits of coloniality. Topics include ectoparasitism, competition for nests and food, trespassing and egg destruction, misdirected parental care, shortage of suitable nesting sites, avoidance and attraction of predators, and social foraging.
