Using the research on intergroup conflict in nonhuman animals to help inform patterns of human intergroup conflict

A.R. Ridley, Melanie Mirville

Research output: Contribution to journalLetter


There is a large body of research on conflict in nonhuman animal groups that measures the costs and benefits of intergroup conflict, and we suggest that much of this evidence is missing from De Dreu and Gross's interesting article. It is a shame this work has been missed, because it provides evidence for interesting ideas put forward in the article.
