Kendal, R.L. (2015) 'Social learning and culture in non-human organisms.', in International encyclopedia of the social and behavioural sciences. Oxford: Elsevier, pp. 401-408.
The article reviews the field of animal social learning and culture, covering how and why it is studied in both captive and wild animals, by researchers with often differing agendas. Our increasing understanding of the adaptive value of social learning and culture is discussed as well as the new avenues for research this opens. The interdisciplinary nature of the field is emphasized, which, among other areas, influences theories regarding modularity in the brain, the evolution of social intelligence, and animal conservation and welfare.
