About this book

Principles of Animal Behavior has long been considered the most current and engaging introduction to animal behavior. The Third Edition is now also the most comprehensive and balanced in its approach to the theoretical framework behind how biologists study behavior.

The Third Edition allows students to develop a comprehensive view of the field. The text couples expanded coverage of proximate factors, including neurobiology, endocrinology, genetics, and behavior, with chapters introducing learning and cultural transmission. Examples of proximate and ultimate factors are then integrated into every chapter that follows, reinforcing the way ethologists understand them: as a complex interaction of each type of causation.

The Third Edition offers current research examples in every chapter, including new examples highlighting the growing body of research on the importance of learning and cultural transmission. Phylogenetics is also thoroughly introduced and integrated throughout, both in the text and visually as phylogenetic trees. Every chapter features a new box highlighting a recent research study in applied animal behavior with an emphasis on conservation.
