Media reviews
'The editors and contributors ... have lucidly and interestingly represented current work and ideas in this core area of biology and psychology. This text presents clearly a rich sampling of both the details of animal behavior and analyses of its evolutionary processes and patterns ... a lucid presentation such as this can illuminate the entire field.'
