Surveying and critically synthesizing the research literature, Krause (behavioral ecology, U. of Leeds, UK) and Ruxton (behavioral and physiological ecology, U. of Glasgow, UK) explore the mechanisms that govern the evolution and maintenance of grouping behavior in the animal kingdom and the ecological factors that control group size and group composition. Although the emphasis is on the functions of grouping, developmental, evolutionary, and mechanistic aspects are also discussed. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
