    Animal Friendships

    Research into social behavior in adult animals has often focused on
    aggression, yet members of social species are far more likely to interact
    with each other in a positive way. Animal Friendships explores non-sexual
    bonding behaviors in a range of mammals and birds. Through analysis of
    factors that trigger and deepen friendships, Dagg uncovers a world of
    intricate and complex social interactions. These factors include sources of
    food, formation of coalitions, play-dates for infants, mutual grooming,
    and the apparent pleasure of simple companionship. Chapters cover
    different types of friendship fromthose between two individuals, such as
    malefemale or parentadult offspring friendships, to thosewithin family
    groups, and even inter-species friendships. Not only does the book explore
    how and why friendships form, but it also showcases the ingenious field
    techniques used by researchers, enabling the reader to understand the
    scientific methodology. An invaluable read for both researchers and
    students studying animal social bonding.
    Anne Innis Dagg holds a Ph.D. in animal behavior and is currently a
    Faculty Member in the Independent Studies program at the University
    of Waterloo. She has had extensive field experience researching the
    behaviors of both mammal and bird species.
