About this book

New edition of this standard text. Particular emphasis is placed on understanding evolutionary theories and how they have operated in nature to produce the behaviours exhibited by animals today.

'...does an excellent job of providing definitions for some important current research areas in ethology.' The American Biology Teacher (on previous edition) ' outstanding piece of work utterly essential in the teaching of animal behaviour.' (Reviewer's comments) ' is a genuine revision, not a repackaged updating...As a collection of self-contained essays written with no particular end in view other than to inform and educate (Unravelling Animal Behaviour) is clear, intelligent, thought provoking and eminently readable...' (Animal Behaviour)
