Perspectives on Animal Behavior Book Summary/Review:

Perspectives on Animal Behavior introduces biologists and psychologists to the scientific reasoning and methodology in the field while also addressing development and mechanisms. Rather than just focusing on evolutionary behavior, the book presents a variety of different perspectives including genetics, neurological, learning, and behavioral ecology. The third edition walks them through experimentation and data analysis, which are critical in the field. It includes classical studies that form the foundation of this field but concentrates on more current work in order to present the thinking and experiments. Biologists and psychologists will then gain a modern understanding of animal behavior.

How can we make better sense of animal behavior by using what we know about the brain? This is the first book that attempts to answer this important question by applying neural network theory. Scientists create Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) to make models of the brain. These networks mimic the architecture of a nervous system by connecting elementary neuron-like units into networks in which they stimulate or inhibit each other's activity in much the same way neurons do.

Field and Laboratory Exercises in Animal Behavior is an interactive laboratory manual for students in animal behavior, ethology, and behavioral ecology. It is the first of its kind in this subject area that guides students through the diverse and fascinating fields of behavioral and ethological studies, employing a wide array of organisms as model systems for the study of behavior. Students participate in the development of hypothesis and turn the recording, analysis, and interpretation of data into an active and

In these autobiographical essays by pioneers in the field of animal behavior, the authors discuss childhood, education, moments of discovery, and the attractions of the research that each pursued. The field of animal behavior has been interdisciplinary throughout its history, and the two psychologists and seventeen biologists in Donald Dewsbury's collection provide a fascinating assortment of backgrounds and interests. Chosen by a panel of seven distinguished animal behaviorists, the men whose essays are collected here include two Nobel Prize winners

Fish travel in schools, birds migrate in flocks, honeybees swarm, and ants build trails. How and why do these collective behaviors occur? Exploring how coordinated group patterns emerge from individual interactions, Collective Animal Behavior reveals why animals produce group behaviors and examines their evolution across a range of species. Providing a synthesis of mathematical modeling, theoretical biology, and experimental work, David Sumpter investigates how animals move and arrive together, how they transfer information, how they make decisions and synchronize their

It is hard enough getting a complete picture of how the most common animals - domestic pets, for example - behave. However, this is tougher still for creatures that are active at night, such as many species of cats, live in remote regions, or live in the top of the tree canopy. Zoologists have developed a variety of techniques to conduct behavioural studies including remote sensing, cameras and video cameras, and webcams.

The biological and genetic bases of behavioral diversity have long been topics of study within many disciplines, including evolutionary biology, genetics, ethology, sociobiology, and comparative psychology, but only relatively recently have attempts been made to bring these different approaches together. This volume covers a wide range of interdisciplinary research which uses some of the newest and most promising methods and technologies. Presented here is an overview of findings in the ongoing search for the ultimate causes of behavior in several

Originally published in 1978, this book is a collection of chapters based on the papers read at a conference in 1976 at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The title starts with an introductory essay in which a metatheoretical and philosophical approach to the problem of cognition in animals is discussed. The succeeding chapters are arranged, topically, from basic associative processes to higher mental operations. Problems derived from models of association are discussed; as well as work on attention, memory, and the

This accessible, easy-to-follow book introduces readers to how and why animals behave in the mysterious ways they do. The straightforward text explains behaviors such as mating rituals and raising young, methods of hunting, which animals hibernate, which are nocturnal, and the social patterns of different species, among other things. The images are clear and perfectly illustrate the text, showing that animals and humans are not all that different. For the reader with a curiosity about nature, this book will be

This book addresses theoretical and pragmatic issues concerning naturalistic environments in captivity for animals. The multidisciplinary orientation of the volume will help regulatory personnel, administrators, and researchers to understand each other's roles and responsibilities in the design, construction, and real-time operation of these facilities. The book also highlights the important value of naturalistic environments in captivity to the scientific study of animal behavior. The authors provide insights into identifying physical environmental features not in compliance with existing regulations, and that

Intelligence takes many forms. This exciting study explores the novel insight, basedon well-established ethological principles, that animals, humans, and autonomous robots can all beanalyzed as multi-task autonomous control systems. Biological adaptive systems, the authors argue,can in fact provide a better understanding of intelligence and rationality than that provided bytraditional AI.In this technically sophisticated, clearly written investigation of robot-animalanalogies, McFarland and Bösser show that a bee's accuracy in navigating on a cloudy day and amoth's simple but effective

Abnormal behaviour patterns, from the jumping and somersaulting of caged laboratory mice to the pacing of enclosed 'big cats', are displayed by many millions of farm, zoo, research and companion animals. Including new chapters and over 30 contributors, this book focuses on the causation and treatment of these environment-induced stereotypic behaviours, and their implications for animal welfare and normalcy of brain functioning. The book begins by taking an ethological perspective, focusing on the constraints captivity places on animals' normal behavioural repertoires,
