About The Book

The VIIIth edition of Animal Behaviour is the outcome of unquestionable reliability and acceptability of previous editions by the students and teachers throughout the country. The present edition has been extensively revised to incorporate new discoveries in the field of behaviour and the constantly growing body of knowledge. It is remarkable to authors that new paradigms continue to be established in the field and unifying principles continue to emerge from analysis of complex systems. The authors have completely reviewed the book and updated chapters, and many unnecessary information have been cleared up where found necessary for increasing clarity, accuracy and completeness. This book is an attempt to capture the spirit of a dynamic, expanding and exciting discipline. This book provides a balanced and integrated introductory treatment of the entire field of animal behaviour. It is intended for both biology and psychology students enrolled in their first course in animal behaviour, and recognises the diversity of their backgrounds in the natural sciences and psychology.
