Presented by Friederike Range, University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna. Human societies depend on cooperation. Although it is clear that human collaborative skills are exceptional, animals are also known to collaborate with one another. This talk will review current domestication hypotheses and present data on cooperation of human-raised but pack-living wolves and dogs. Discussion will follow on to what extent the different domestication hypotheses may explain differences between the two species.
