Imitation and cultural transmission in apes and cetaceans

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (2):359-360 (2001)
Abstract
Recent evidence suggests imitation is more developed in some cetaceans than the authors imply. Apart from apes, only dolphins have so far shown a grasp of what it is to imitate; moreover dolphins ape humans more clearly than do apes. Why have such abilities not been associated with the kind of progressive cultural complexity characteristic of humans?
