Product description


... the book does an excellent job of meeting its stated goals, and I recommend it highly. (ISBE Newsletter)

... very well written ... could certainly be used in courses. For researchers active in the area, the book will be of value as a concise summary that has sifted and evaluated many papers. (ISBE Newsletter)

... broad and well-rounded approach makes the book essential reading for graduate students or advanced undergraduates trying to penetrate the enormous primary literature on group living. (ISBE Newsletter)

It's a very nice book and I learned a lot from it. (David Sloan Wilson, Depts of Biology and Anthropology, Binghamton University, NY)

Living in Groups is highly worthwhile for any biologist interested in the nature of groups. (David Sloan Wilson, Quarterly Review of Biology)

The authors convey an infectious enthusiasm for their subject but are also critical, pointing out the need for both theory and empirical research. Their treatment of parasites in addition to predators as an important influence on groups is especially noteworthy. (David Sloan Wilson, Quarterly Review of Biology)

... was I inspired? Yes, indeed ... would I buy it? My answer is that I had already bought my own copy of Living in Groups" before receiving the evaluation copy. (Animal Behaviour)

This will be the first book that I hand to a new gradute student and I recommend it to all biologists who think about animals that live in groups. (Trends in Ecology and Evolution)
