New book on animal behavior provides integrated view
Date:3/22/2011

ehavior. "It was through these interactions that we both became convinced that integrative animal behavior consists of more than just cataloging data at different levels of analysis but is most potent when it uses information at each level of analysis to inform research and interpretations at other levels."

Their book is divided into three main sections: Basic Concepts, covering the function and evolution of behavior as well as the mechanism and acquisition of behavior; The Search for Resources, which discusses foraging, migration, and orientation; and Social Behavior, which includes species recognition and sexual selection, social bonding and cooperation, and conflict and aggression. The book is copiously illustrated with examples critical to understanding the concepts discussed. This book will appeal to upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, and others wanting a succinct introduction to this integrative approach to animal behavior studies.
