    Gillian R. Brown (2004). Tolerated Scrounging in Nonhuman Primates. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (4):562-563.
    Gurven suggests that the tolerated scrounging model has limited relevance for explaining patterns of food transfers in human populations. However, this conclusion is based on a restricted interpretation of the tolerated scrounging model proposed originally by Blurton Jones (1987). Examples of food transfers in nonhuman primates illustrate that the assumptions of Gurven's tolerated scrounging model are open to question.
