De Waal, F. (1996) Good Natured: The Origins of Right and Wrong in Humans and Other Animals, Cambridge, MA: Harvard Univ. Press. He also describes the bitter, dangerous conflict that erupts when a stack of bananas is left in a common pile for the entire troop. Thus, some food resources are shared and others not. De Waal speculates about the symbolism of meat as the central dish in so many human cultures. It's special nature may be due to the need for cooperative hunting or to the fact that it once was moving like us.
