About this book

Exploring Animal Behavior in Laboratory and Field, second edition provides a comprehensive manual on animal behaviour lab activities. This new edition brings together basic research and methods, presenting applications and problem-solving techniques. It provides all the details to successfully run designed activities while also offering flexibility and ease in setup. The exercises in this volume address animal behaviour at all levels, describing behaviour, theory, application and communication. Each lab provides details on how to successfully run the activity while also offering flexibility to instructors. This is an important resource for students educators, researchers and practitioners who want to explore and study animal behaviour.

The field of animal behaviour has changed dramatically in the past 15 – 20 years, including a greater use and availability of technology and statistical analysis. In addition, animal behaviour has taken on a more applied role in the last decade, with a greater emphasis on conservation and applied behaviour, hence the necessity for new resources on the topic.
