Subsequent sections focus on group-living rodents and characterize their reproductive behaviors, life histories and population ecology, genetics, neuroendocrine mechanisms, behavioral development, cognitive processes, communication mechanisms, cooperative and uncooperative behaviors, antipredator strategies, comparative socioecology, diseases Reviews: 4. The Neanderthals populated western Europe from nearly , to 30, years ago when they disappeared from the archaeological record. In turn, populations of anatomically modern humans, Homo sapiens, came to dominate the area. Seeking to understand the nature of this replacement, which has become a hotly debated issue, Paul Mellars brings together an unprecedented amount of information .

The text is organized into nine sections, beginning with a succinct, but satisfying, overview of rodent evolutionary history and proceeding through sexual behavior, life histories and behavior, behavioral development, social behavior, antipredator behavior, comparative socioecology, conservation and disease, and a final concluding section. Chapter One Primate Life Histories and Socioecology. Peter M. Kappeler, Michael E. Pereira, and Carel P. van Schaik. One major goal of socioecology is to explain the evolution of diversity among social systems, which are defined in relation to both grouping characteristics and the nature of social and mating relationships within groups.
