Eric Patterson, Georgetown University This is a wonderful text. It is full of clear and informative examples that highlight major concepts in animal behavior, leaving students not with a list of terms to memorize, but a better understanding of how scientists think about animal behavior more broadly.
Stan Braude, Washington University in St. Louis This text covers all the major theoretical topics we teach in animal behavior and illustrates each with concrete examples from current research. More than any other, this book gives students a firm grasp of hypothesis testing and experimental process.
Miles Engell, North Carolina State University Animal Behavior, Second Edition, offers a completely different way of presenting material to students - it enables them to see 'science in action,' and thus the concepts come alive, rather than appearing as dull facts to be memorized. It is very well written and engaging, and students with even the slightest interest in the field will enjoy reading it! The focus on applications and current research is especially appealing and unique.
Melloni Cook, University of Memphis I was very excited to read the chapter on mating systems. I found myself more and more excited as I read through explanations of why systems existed, etc. My immediate thought was 'Students will get this!'. This book is written on a level that students can easily understand, and each chapter provides relevant and interesting examples of the concepts that it covers. The 'Scientific Process' boxes in each chapter are particularly useful, as they draw students'
attention to experiments, including hypotheses, methods, results, and implications.
