This chapter examines the ways in which social influence controls reproduction in animals and reviews evidence from some new research demonstrating many of the same phenomena in humans. Drawing on Robert Cialdini's principles of influence, it considers how individuals may influence the reproductive behavior of other individuals of the same species for their own benefit. It shows that human parents differ from their animal counterparts in that they are often highly influential in determining their children's mate choice.

Keywords:   social influence, reproductive behavior, animals, humans, Robert Cialdini, parents, children, mate choice, reproduction
