Social Organization of the Rufous Vanga
edited by Satoshi Yamagishi

For several decades, Yamagishi and his associates have studied the ecological and social behavior of the rufous vangas, a unique species of birds in Madagascar. In this volume the team summarizes the findings of its long-term research, with specific observations about cooperative breeding, sex ratio manipulation, foraging and helper behavior. The authors demonstrate the implications of the study for theories of evolution, genetic inheritance and group formation.
