Social Organization of the Rufous Vanga
Edited by: Satoshi Yamagishi
For a few decades, Yamagishi and his associates have studied the ecological and social behavior of the rufous, a unique species of birds in Madagascar. In this volume, the team summarizes the findings of their long-term research, with specific observations about cooperative breeding, sex ratio manipulation, foraging and helping behavior. The authors demonstrate the implications of the study for theories of evolution, genetic inheritance and group formation.
