About this book

The Quality of the individual papers...[is] decidedly above average....I do suggest that university libraries buy this useful series. Animal Behavior, 12. The discussions provided allow the beginner to quickly come up to speed in specific areas....For more experienced readers they provide new viewpoints, corrections of misconceptions, and a means of checking what we think we already know. The Wilson Bulletin, 11.
