Parent and Infant Attachment in Mammals

  • Chapter
Parental Care in Mammals

Abstract

Parental care is one strategy which helps ensure the survival of offspring and thereby enhances the parents’ reproductive success (see Klopfer, this volume; Pianka, 1970). In mammals, parental care usually involves behavioral interactions between parents and offspring. One form these interactions can take is that of parent and infant attachment, the subject of this chapter.
