Introduction

THIS IS A PAGE BY MEHERET OURGESSA

Infanticide generally refers to the killing of an infant or a young offspring by another individual of the same species and is observed in a variety of species ranging 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. There are several explanations 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.
