    Am J Primatol 65:301-12. 2005

    Trends Ecol Evol 23:486-93. 2008
    ..Drawing on both mechanistic and functional arguments, we integrate teaching with the broader field of animal social learning, and show how this aids understanding of how and why teaching evolved, and the diversity of teaching mechanisms...
