Primate infancies. Causes and consequences of varying care.

Primate infancies. Causes and consequences of varying care.

Abstract

Bowlby recognized that studying other primates could help identify the needs of human infants; his evolutionary perspective has had a wide impact on understanding of human development. Much more is now known about evolutionary processes and variation, within and between species. This chapter reviews aspects of evolutihonary theory and primatology relevant to Bowlby’s theory of attachement.
