The Encyclopedia of Animal Behavior has engaged, with great success, the efforts of many of the best behavioral biologists of the 21st century.
This comprehensive work covers not only the usual topics such as communication, learning, sexual selection, navigation and the history of the field, but also emerging topics in cognition, animal welfare, conservation and applications of animal behavior. The large section on animal cognition brings together many of the world’s experts on the subject to provide a thorough overview of this rapidly developing area.
This authoritative reference, with its in-depth introductory articles, rich array of illustrations, interactive cross-referenced links, and numerous suggested readings, can guide the student to an expanded appreciation of the far-flung world of animal behavior. An invaluable tool for teaching and a source of enrichment and detail for any topic covered in an animal behavior course, The Encyclopedia of Animal Behavior is the definitive reference work in its field.
