Kurzbeschreibung

2. März 2012
This textbook helped to define the field of Behavioural Ecology. In this fourth edition the text has been completely revised, with new chapters and many new illustrations and full colour photographs. The theme, once again, is the influence of natural selection on behaviour - an animal's struggle to survive and reproduce by exploiting and competing for resources, avoiding predators, selecting mates and caring for offspring, - and how animal societies reflect both cooperation and conflict among individuals.
 
Stuart A. West has joined as a co-author bringing his own perspectives and work on microbial systems into the book.
 
Written in the same engaging and lucid style as the previous editions, the authors explain the latest theoretical ideas using examples from micro-organisms, invertebrates and vertebrates. There are boxed sections for some topics and marginal notes help guide the reader. The book is essential reading for students of behavioural ecology, animal behaviour and evolutionary biology.
 
Key Features:
* Long-awaited new edition of a field-defining textbook
* New chapters, illustrations and colour photographs
* New co-author
* Focuses on the influence of natural selection on behavior, and how animal societies reflect both cooperation and conflict among individuals

"The long-awaited update to a classic in this field is now here, presenting new direc­tions in thinking and addressing burning questions. Richly informed by progress in many other disciplines, such as sensory physiology, genetics and evolutionary theory, it marks the emergence of behav­ioural ecology as a fully fledged discipline..... This is a marvellous book, written in a lucid style. A must-read for those in the field, it is also a cornucopia of new thinking for anyone interested in evolution and behaviour."
 
Manfred Milinski, Nature, 2012

Pressestimmen

"The book opens with a section on Watching and Wondering, capturing the excitement of natural history, that same wonderment that Kruuk describes so well, and then guides the reader through a series of fascinating questions and findings, experiments and field studies. . . This is clearly good for students wishing to put together presentations for assessments, and extremely useful for lecturers, new and old . . I should say that this is a certainty and future generations will owe this book a considerable debt." (Journal of Evolutionary Psychology, 1 October 2012)
 
"Among the most influential books in the field of behavioral ecology, An Introduc-tion to Behavioural Ecology certainly stands out to the extent that it has been called 'a classic textbook." (Trends in Ecology & Evolution, 2012)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent textbook 27. Januar 2014
Von ZHOU CHUNFEN - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Elegant would be the word when it comes for me to describe this book. Its text is scientifically rigorous yet being kept clear and succinct. Most examples (with a few exceptions) are well-chosen and interesting. It also covers almost all branches of behavioral ecology (doesn't include niche construction and life history theory, though. But I think these two are mostly treated by evolutionary ecology, rather than BE).

However, as the title suggests, this is an introductory level book, meaning that all chapters only touch on the basics of the field (which probably helps to explain why it is almost free of math). So, if an interested reader wants to venture further into a topic, s(he) should follow the suggested readings and references (these two parts are very good) provided by the book. In recent years, some of the foundations of behavioral ecology (e.g. inclusive fitness theory) has been questioned to some extent. As a textbook, this book understandably conveys only the received wisdom. For those who want to know more about the controversy, other sources of information may be needed.

Overall, I would recommend this book to upper-level undergraduates in biology (EEB in particular) and graduate students who want to refresh their mind of the discipline, as well as to educated laymen who are interested in natural history (especially animal behavior).

5.0 von 5 Sternen More than expected 27. Juli 2012
Von Alexander V. Georgiev - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The new edition is everything I hoped it would be - thoroughly updated with a huge amount of examples from studies that have appeared since the publication of the last edition. Bigger, better, prettier!
3.0 von 5 Sternen used the book before 24. März 2014
Von J.M.Tinbergen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The book has become too long and in places too complicated, and is therefore less suited to teach first year students. This is a pity. The text was very suited for our goal, cristal clear in places, and it was one of our best books for teaching. Now we need to select parts of text and that is not handy. cant the details come later? So the book has lost its force, although the text is partly exactly tyhe same!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Textbook Ever! 13. Januar 2014
