A fascinating review of the latest molecular, genetic, hormonal, anatomical and behavioural data presented in a series of lively and highly readable articles from world experts. Such an overview has never been attempted before and is especially useful for those who want to see a bridge between the study of animal behaviour in the field and laboratory studies of genes and molecules.
'A beautiful collection of reviews and essays on one of the central problems of modern biology ... excellent value for money for researchers and students alike.' A. Loudon, New Scientist ' ... encourages argument based on scientific observation.' John Bignall, The Lancet 'This book will be read with pleasure by anyone who is a biology graduate and who has a deep curiosity about animals. Its outstanding strengths are the panoramic breadth of its subject matter, the authority of its authors and (with a few exceptions) the accessibility of its language. I would not hesitate to recommend it as an undergraduate text.' Trends in Genetics
