the first aim of this quantity is to develop the conceptual unification of primatology and the opposite evolutionary sciences, via addressing the evolution of behavioral flexibility within the Primate Order. one of many first classes realized in introductory records is that occasions on this planet range. besides the fact that, a few species convey a better diversity of phenotypic plasticity, together with behavioral flexibility, than others. Primates are between these taxa complex to reveal an unusual measure of behavioral range. This quantity explores the behavioral ecology and evolution of behavioral flexibility in primates when it comes to the optimization of survival, (inclusive) reproductive luck, and phenotypic effect. Behavioral Flexibility in Primates: factors and results proposes that genetic conflicts of curiosity are ubiquitous in primates who may well 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 team imposes critical charges to inclusive health or to the phenotype upon another person, the latter may well undertake a counterstrategy in an try to reduce its personal expenses. Counterstrategies may well, in flip, impose expenditures upon the unique actor(s), and so forth, potentially yielding an evolutionary 'chase' ('interlocus contest evolution'). The evolution of phenotypic plasticity in primates could usually 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 basically to pageant for meals (that should be switched over to offspring) whereas, for men ('time-minimizers'), clash will pertain basically to festival for friends. those comparable and novel views are built during this new volume.
