New paper explores if elephants simulate estrus

A new scientific paper on which Joyce is an author is made available through PloS One. The paper whose lead author is Lucy Bates examines a phenomenon that Joyce and her colleagues have observed for decades in Amboseli: Why elephant mothers might simulate estrous behavior when their young daughters come into estrus for the first time?
