    Thumbs up Bird Nests and Construction Behaviour

    Bird Nests and Construction Behaviour
    by Mike Hansell, Raith Overhill



    Pages: 296
    Publisher: Cambridge University Press
    Edition: 2005
    Language: English
    ISBN: 978-0521460387

    Description

    Bird Nests and Construction Behaviour provides a broad view of our current understanding of the biology of the nests, bowers, and tools made by birds. It illustrates how birds, among vertebrates, have more impressive and consistent building abilities than any other builders, excluding humans. However, birds seem to require no special building equipment and use quite uncomplicated behavior. The book raises general issues in the field of behavioral ecology, including the costs of reproduction, sexual selection, and the organization and complexity of behavior. This volume was written for students and researchers of animal behavior, behavioral ecology, and ornithology, it will nevertheless make fascinating reading for architects and engineers interested in understanding how structures are created by animals.
