Product Description
This new edition of Animal Behavior has been thoroughly rewritten with coverage of much recent work in animal behavior. The scope of the changes for the Tenth Edition, however, is much more all-encompassing than that of past revisions. Thoughtful suggestions from many readers inspired a major reorganization of the material, such that the new book presents the central concepts of animal behavior in a different sequence from prior editions: The Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection. The Distinction between Proximate and Ultimate Causation in Biology. The Procedures That Scientists Use to Test Their Tentative Explanations for Such Things as Darwinian Puzzles. Enduring features of prior editions remain evident in this new book: the clear, engaging writing style; text beautifully illustrated with many new photographs; references to a large number of new scientific articles; and a substantial number of new and old discussion questions embedded in the text.
