Chimpanzee Cultures by Richard Wrangham
Book DescriptionDo chimpanzees have something akin to culture? Bringing together studies of behavioural variation within and among chimpanzees and bonobos - the sibling species of the genus "Pan" - this book provides the basis for answering this question. In "Chimpanzee Cultures", leading authorities on chimpanzees and bonobos chronicle the animals' behaviours from one study site to the next, in both captive and wild groups, in laboratory and field settings.

Books By Author Richard Wrangham
Catching Fire, Paperback (May 2010)
Argues that it was cooking that caused the transformation of our ancestors from apelike beings to Homo erectus. This title focuses on the idea: the habit of eating cooked rather than raw food permitted the digestive tract to shrink and the human brain to grow, helped structure human society, and created the male-female division of labour.
Sexual Coercion in Primates and Humans, Hardback (June 2009)
In a systematic attempt to assess and understand primate male aggression as an expression of sexual conflict, the contributors to this volume consider coercion in direct and indirect forms: direct, in overcoming female resistance to mating; indirect, in decreasing the chance the female will mate with other males.
Science and Conservation in African Forests, Paperback (August 2008)
Unique case study, inspiring researchers and conservationists to work together to promote biodiversity through field projects.
