Download e-book for kindle: Behavioral Flexibility in Primates: Causes and Consequences by Clara Jones

By Clara Jones

the first target of this quantity is to improve the conceptual unification of primatology and the opposite evolutionary sciences, by means of addressing the evolution of behavioral flexibility within the Primate Order. one of many first classes realized in introductory statistics is that occasions on the earth fluctuate. in spite of the fact that, a few species express a better variety of phenotypic plasticity, together with behavioral flexibility, than others. Primates are between these taxa complicated to reveal an unusual measure of behavioral variety. This quantity explores the behavioral ecology and evolution of behavioral flexibility in primates in terms of the optimization of survival, (inclusive) reproductive luck, and phenotypic impact. Behavioral Flexibility in Primates: factors and results proposes that genetic conflicts of curiosity are ubiquitous in primates who may possibly hire strength, coercion, persuasion, endurance, scrambles, cooperation, exploitation, manipulation, social parasitism, dispersal or spite to unravel or deal with them. the place one person or crew imposes critical expenditures to inclusive health or to the phenotype upon someone else, the latter could undertake a counterstrategy in an try and reduce its personal bills. Counterstrategies could, in flip, impose bills upon the unique actor(s), and so forth, very likely yielding an evolutionary 'chase' ('interlocus contest evolution'). The evolution of phenotypic plasticity in primates may possibly frequently pertain to makes an attempt to mitigate genetic conflicts of curiosity, and vintage paintings in behavioral ecology results in the belief that for adult females ('energy-maximizers'), clash will pertain essentially to pageant for nutrition (that should be switched over to offspring) whereas, for men ('time-minimizers'), clash will pertain basically to festival for associates. those similar and novel views are constructed during this new volume.
