Summary

The experienced author team of Drickamer, Vessey, and Meikle has created a unique balance in the new edition of Animal Behavior by clearly describing the necessary elements of mechanisms, ecology, and evolution that your students need to know. This one-semester text is designed for your upper- level course and features chapter coverage that has been completely reorganized to promote a more logical framework for study.
Douglas Miekle has joined Animal Behavior's experienced author team. His extensive knowledge in behavioral ecology has contributed significantly to this new edition.
Animal Behavior's organization focuses on five key areas of study: introduction to animal behavior, behavior genetics and evolution, mechanisms of behavior, finding food and shelter, and social organization and mating systems.
Greater detail has been added where necessary to clarify key topics, such as genes and evolution, applied animal behavior, and neuronal and sensory mechanisms.
