This book illustrates how the profound changes in our understanding of evolution have influenced behavioral research. Its chapters span both studies of how behavior itself has evolved, dealing with topics such as comparative studies, the genetics of behavior, speciation, and the evolution of sociality and of intelligence, and also the adaptiveness that this evolution has brought about, with treatment of mating and fighting strategies, and theories of kinship and altruism.

Book Description:

Illustrating how the profound changes in our understanding of evolution have influenced behavioral research, this book spans studies of how behavior itself has evolved as well as the adaptiveness that evolution has brought about.

From the Back Cover:

This book, part of a series from The Open University in the United Kingdom, is about animal behaviour. The behaviour of animals, including humans, is very diverse and often very complex. Studying behaviour draws on the work of scientists from several disciplines, including ethologists, psychologists, physiologists and biochemists. The question that most of them are interested in answering is: why does an animal behave in the way it does? The possible answers, development, survival value, evolutionary history or cause-and-effect are the themes that run through this introduction to behaviour and evolution, the four explantations of behaviour.
