Grandparental investment and the epiphenomenon of menopause in recent human history

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 33 (1):19-20 (2010)
Abstract
The effects of grandparental investment in relatives are apparent in human groups, suggesting that a postreproductive period in humans is selective. Although investment of relatives in kin produces obvious benefits for kin groups, selection for a postreproductive period in humans is not supported by evidence from chimpanzees. Instead, grandparental investment is likely a recent phenomenon of longevity, rather than an evolved feature
