Man interacts with animals in numerous ways - they provide a food source, raw materials, transport and companionship, as well as competion for resources - so how we manage their behaviour is of great importance. This text brings together several fields of study in ethology, in a way that should help us manage the behaviour of animals better, and covers subjects such as improving productivity in agriculture and aquaculture, improving the welfare of captive animals, promoting the conservation of endangered species, and finding humane solutions to deal with animal pests. Of interest to zoologists, behaviourists and veterinarians alike.
