This book describes the first field study focusing on the behavior of hamadryas females in the wild. In its attempt to rectify the male-biased view of hamadryas baboon behavior that has persisted over the decades, this book suggests that female behavior contributes more to hamadryas social organization than has previously been assumed and that females may, in fact, be acting in their own best interests after all. For upper-level undergraduate courses on primate behavior and ecology.

Author Biography - Larissa Swedell

Larissa Swedell is Professor of Anthropology at Queens College, CUNY, USA. As a biological anthropologist, her interest in nonhuman primates derives in part from what their behavior, ecology, and evolution can tell us about the evolutionary history of humans and the biological underpinnings of modern human behavior. As a behavioral ecologist, she is most interested in the interacting reproductive strategies of males and females and the evolutionary advantages of sociality and social bonds.
