Written by a team of leading experts in the field, The Neuroethology of Predation and Escape provides an engaging, broad ranging, and cutting-edge exploration of the neural basis of predator prey interaction, from biophysics to behavior and the evolution of escape and predatory mechanisms. Ideal for students and researchers alike, this advanced text illuminates the design principles of escape and predatory behaviors using a series of case histories from different animal groups to emphasize the convergent evolution of neural circuitry that optimizes the chances of survival.
