BOOK EXCERPT:

Since the last edition of this definitive textbook was published in 2013, much has happened in the field of animal behavior. In this fourth edition, Lee Alan Dugatkin draws on cutting-edge new work not only to update and expand on the studies presented, but also to reinforce the previous editions’ focus on ultimate and proximate causation, as well as the book’s unique emphasis on natural selection, learning, and cultural transmission. The result is a state-of-the-art textbook on animal behavior that explains underlying concepts in a way that is both scientifically rigorous and accessible to students. Each chapter in the book provides a sound theoretical and conceptual basis upon which the empirical studies rest. A completely new feature in this edition are the Cognitive Connection boxes in Chapters 2–17, designed to dig deep into the importance of the cognitive underpinnings to many types of behaviors. Each box focuses on a specific issue related to cognition and the particular topic covered in that chapter. As Principles of Animal Behavior makes clear, the tapestry of animal behavior is created from weaving all of these components into a beautiful whole. With Dugatkin’s exquisitely illustrated, comprehensive, and up-to-date fourth edition, we are able to admire that beauty anew.

BOOK EXCERPT:

In order to understand and manage animals in their natural or captive environments we must first understand why animals do what they do and recognize limitations in their ability to adapt to different environments. Drawing on the author's considerable experience in both teaching and research, this introductory-level textbook describes the basic principles underlying animal behavior and how those concepts can be used in managing the care of domestic and captive wild animals, covering four key themes: development of behavior, biological rhythms, social behavior and behavioral aspects of animal management. Extensively illustrated with many practical examples and over 150 photos and figures, the book will be essential reading for animal science and veterinary students.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Principles of Animal Behavior, the highly an ticipated contemporary text from Professor Lee Alan Dugatkin, takes a uniquely integrative approach to animal behavior. Professor Dugatkin creates a balanced discussion in several ways: by recognizing genetic evolution as the primary force underlying animal behavior while also discussing the role of learning and cultural transmission, by placing equal emphasis on theory and empirical work, by employing a diverse group of case studies, and by covering both vertebrates and invertebrates extensively. Principles of Animal Behavior also features exclusive interviews with leading scholars and researchers, lively prose, and a vivid art program, ensuring that it will be a welcome addition to the field.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Companion Animal Behaviour counselling has expanded dramatically over the last decade or so, yet there are very few text books for students or professionals. No formally recognised qualifications became available until 1994 when the University of Southampton set up a postgraduate certificate (later diploma) in companion animal counselling, run on a modular basis aimed at veterinarians. The popularity of the course indicates the growing market for a comprehensive textbook. By concentrating on the principles which govern behaviour, this book provides the basic tools needed to solve behaviour problems, not only of dogs and cats, but also a wide variety of companion animals. Relevant and recent research is explained and presented precisely in a way which is accessible to students.
