Summary

Living in groups has been an animal survival strategy for millions of years. Animal Life in Groups explores the social lives of bees, meerkats, monkeys, and other animals and insects, with a special emphasis on how different groups compare to one another and how living with others benefits individuals. From hives to more complex cultures, the intricacies of community living are both fascinating and instructive about the evolution of behavior, cooperation, intelligence, and emotions.
