About this title


A researcher on animal behavior explores the social and ecological aspects of nurturing in baboons

From the Inside Flap:

When it was originally released in 1980, Jeanne Altmann's book transformed the study of maternal primate relationships by focusing on motherhood and infancy within an ecological and sociological context. Available again with a new foreword, Baboon Mothers and Infants is a classic book that has been, in its own right, mother to a generation of influential research and will no doubt provide further inspiration.
