This chapter discusses how behavioral syndromes relate to mating and cooperation. It also examines the social ecology of behavioral syndromes by considering the following issues: (1) key aspects of social situation and quantifying variation in social situation; (2) the effects of social situation on fitness of different behavioral types; (3) variations in social plasticity and sensitivity; (4) adaptive social plasticity or social skill; and (5) the effects of the mix of behavioral types on group dynamics and population fitness.

Keywords:   behavioral syndromes, mating, cooperation, social ecology, social situation, social plasticity, sensitivity, adaptive social plasticity, social skill, population fitness
