Integrates evolutionary ecology and cognitive science, demonstrating how studies of perception, memory and learning can deepen our understanding of animal behaviour and ecology. Individual chapters consider such issues as the evolution of learning and its influence on behaviour; the effects of cognitive mechanisms on the evolution of signaling behaviour; how neurobiological and evolutionaty processes have shaped navigational activities; functional and mechanical explanations for altered behaviours in response to changing environments; how foragers make decisions and how these decisions are influenced by the risks of predation; and how cognitive mechanisms affect partner choice.
