Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(9), 723–724. Reviews the book, Advances in the study of behavior, Vol 9 edited by Jay S. Rosenblatt, Robert A. Hinde, Colin Beer, and Marie-Claire Busnel (1979). Volume 9 of this excellent series continues the pattern of earlier volumes in featuring a diverse array of important, integrative papers in animal behavior. The series is a must for any animal behaviorist wishing to remain current in the field. Perhaps the most provocative paper in the present set is that of R. V. Short, who provides a speculative review of the role of behavior and sexual selection in the evolution of somatic and genital morphology in the great apes and humans. The volume concludes on the mutual constraints between ontogenesis and phylogenesis, written by G. Richard. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
