The Biological Basis of Alloparental Behaviour in Mammals

In this chapter, we have reviewed the biological basis of alloparental care, summarizing proximate (mechanistic) and ultimate (functional) explanations for alloparental care in mammals. Can these hypotheses apply to alloparental care in humans? We argue that many of the proposed proximate and ultimate explanations can be applied to human behaviour. Species of cooperatively breeding mammals are likely to provide useful comparative data for examining human alloparental care because we should be able to identify the biological basis for alloparental care in societies that lack cultural overlays.
