This new edition of Animal Behavior has been completely rewritten, resulting in a more compact yet thoroughly up-to-date text.
Notable is the inclusion, for the first time, of four-color photographs and illustrations throughout.
Like previous editions, the book shows how evolutionary biologists analyze all aspects of behavior.
It is distinguished by its balanced treatment of both the underlying mechanisms and evolutionary causes of behavior, and stresses the utility of evolutionary theory in unifying the different behavioral disciplines.
Important concepts are explained by reference to key illustrative studies, which are described in sufficient detail to help students appreciate the role of the scientific process in producing research discoveries.
Examples are drawn evenly from studies of invertebrates and vertebrates, and are supported by nearly 1,300 reference citations.
The writing style is clear and engaging: beginning students have no difficulty following the material, despite the strong conceptual orientation of the text.
