Infanticide in Primates
THIS IS A PAGE BY MEHERET OURGESSA
Infanticide generally refers to the killing of an infant by any other individual and is observed in a variety of species from humans to microscopic rotifers.
In non-human primates, it is used to refer to the killing of a dependent young by another individual of the same species. Several explanations have been
proposed for the existence of infanticide in non-human primate communities.
The topic must include one section about microbes (bacteria, viruses, fungi, or protists). This is easy because all organisms and ecosystems have microbes.
