  Written by internationally reknowned researchers of quantitative primate evolutionary morphology, each chapter elaborates upon the analysis of the form-function-behavior triad. This book is unique, therefore, not only in the diversity of the topics discussed, but also in the range of levels of biological organization that are addressed from cellular morphometrics to the evolution of primate ecology, making it a must-have volume for all functional 5/5(1). This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the study of behaviour, from its basis in the animal¿s anatomy and physiology to its adaptive value in the by: “The Behavior of Animals: Mechanisms, Function, and Evolution is a highly suitable textbook [for such an upper level course,] as it exposes students and other non-experts to the cutting edge of this discipline by relying on the voices of experts and provision . What an individual human or animal does in its life depends on the reciprocal nature of its relationships with the world about it. This knowledge also points to ways in which an animal’s own behaviour can provide the variation that influences the subsequent course of by: 6.

The book describes mechanisms and theories for understanding the relationships between feeding structure and feeding behavior. Finally, the book demonstrates the importance of adopting an integrative approach to the trophic system in order to understand evolutionary mechanisms across the biodiversity of vertebrates. human body: a textbook of biology, a lesson in evolution. We are struck, first, by the innumerable features that enable us to function. Whether we consider our eyes, our brain, or our immune system, we find complex features admirably suited for the functions they perform. Such features that serve our survival and reproduction are called. study the evolution, development a nd function of the natural behaviour patterns of a wide range of s pecies, under the general heading of “Behavioral Ecology”). This book.   Understanding Behaviorism is a classic textbook that explains the basis of behavior analysis and its application to human problems in a scholarly but accessible manner.. Now in its third edition, the text has been substantially updated to include the latest developments over the last decade in behaviour analysis, evolutionary theory, and cultural evolution theory.

Behavior has become one of the major interests of biology today. As it relates to the mechanisms of the human brain, behavior has been considered the ultimate challenge of man’s intellect. Exploring Animal Behavior in Laboratory and Field is designed to provide a variety of exercises that engage students actively in all phases of scientific investigation, from formulating research questions through interpreting and presenting final results. It attempts to share the collective teaching expertise and experience of members of the Animal Behavior Society with all who are willing to benefit from their Cited by: 8. "The Behavior of Animals: Mechanisms, Function, and Evolution is a highly suitable textbook [for such an upper level course,] as it exposes students and other non-experts to the cutting edge of this discipline by relying on the voices of experts and provision of good starting point references across this broad field.".   This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the study of behaviour, from its basis in the animal's anatomy and physiology to its adaptive value in the environment. It is aimed at undergraduate students in the biological sciences and psychology and is designed to serve as both a detailed introduction and an extensive, /5(4).
