About this book

Classic textbook and concise introduction to animal behaviour. In this edition, the coverage of mechanisms of behaviour is much expanded, as is the material on development, evolution and natural selection.

Praise for the first edition "The book's chief distinction is it accessibility: indeed it succeeds excellently as an introduction to its subject. It is clear, lucid, easy to read, and unstuffy." -- Times Higher Education Supplement
