From the Publisher
Editors Note Some of the most exciting recent advances in animal behavior have occurred in conjunction with the study of evolution. 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. Behaviour and Evolution will be invaluable to senior undergraduate and graduate students of biology and psychology, especially those studying animal behavior, behavioral ecology, sociobiology, evolution, ecology, and environmental biology.
