    Originally published by Aldine in , this book by Hans Kummer, one of the world's leading primate ethologists, examines the patterns of social interaction among primates. The author examines this social behavior from the fundamentally biological viewpoint of evolutionary adaptation as part of the survival mechanisms for the species. In this book, Hans Kummer, one of the world's leading primate ethologists, examines the patterns of social interaction among primates. From this sample case, he proceeds to a more general characterization of primate societies, using as examples the great apes and monkeys of Africa, Asia, and South America and particularly the widely studied.

    The final section of- the book confronts man with his fellow primates, emphasizing the probable limits imposed upon human culture by the existing phylogenetic heritage. Primate Societies: Group Techniques of Ecological Adaptation (Paperback)Brand: Professor Hans Kummer. As part of the SFI series, this book presents the most up-to-date research in the study of human and primate societies, presenting recent advances in software and algorithms for modeling societies. It also addresses case studies that have applied agent-based modeling approaches in archaeology, cultural anthropology, primatology, and sociology.
