About this book

Animal behavior is one of the most engaging and intuitively attractive areas of biological science, and a laboratory in conjunction with a behavior course can play a key role in bringing this field to life for students. This manual is designed to accompany courses in Animal Behavior, Ethology, or Behavioral Ecology.

The authors guide students through the diverse and fascinating fields of behavioral and ethological studies, employing a wide array of organisms as model systems for the study of behavior. The approach emphasizes observation and the scientific process of developing questions and testable hypotheses based on observation. Adaptable to any geographic location or season, this manual asks students to participate in the development of hypotheses, and turns the recording, analysis, and interpretation of data into an active and engaging process.

Media reviews

I particularly like the introductory chapters about conducting independent research and presenting results. I also like the appendices with information about techniques in behavioral analysis and statistics. I like the range of exercises offered and the fact that many different types of study organisms are used. - Mansfield University "I like that it describes how to come up with independent projects in animal behavior and it has lots of feasible field studies (especially on pollination/foraging) that can be done anywhere." -Birmingham-Southern College "I really like the way it takes students through the thought processes involved in a discovery exercise (the way I teach this course). I suggest that the statistics section also include nonparametric tests since these are used so much in behavior." -The College of Mount Saint Vincent
