About this book

This textbook is designed for all undergraduate students headed for medical, dental, veterinary, and nursing school, as well as biology majors. Classical and modern ethology is discussed in addition to sociobiology and, finally, the physiology of different behavioral systems. Attention is paid to the behavior of primates, including humans, and in some cases mention is made of human clinical syndromes.
