Book Description

As Principles of Animal Behavior; 4th Edition; (PDF) makes clear; the tapestry of animal behavior is created from weaving all of these mechanisms into a beautiful whole. With Dugatkin’s beautifully illustrated; thorough; and up-to-date fourth edition; we are able to respect that beauty anew.

Since the last edition of this conclusive textbook was published in 2013; much has happened in the field of animal behavior. In this 4th edition; Lee Alan Dugatkin draws on leading-edge new work not only to inform and expand on the studies presented; but also to strengthen the previous editions’ focus on crucial and proximate causation; as well as the ebook’s unique stress on natural selection; learning; and cultural transmission. The result is an advanced textbook on animal behavior that explains basic concepts in a way that is both scientifically rigorous and available to students. Each chapter in the ebook offers a sound theoretical and conceptual basis upon which the empirical studies rest. An entirely new feature in this Fourth edition is the Cognitive Connection boxes in Chapters 2–17; designed to dig deep into the significance of the cognitive underpinnings to many types of behaviors. Each box emphasizes on a specific issue associated with cognition and the specific topic covered in that chapter.


Up-to-date; richly illustrated; and highly integrative. It thus deserves serious consideration by anyone looking for a textbook to support undergraduate offerings in behavioral ecology or animal behavior. . . . Principles of Animal Behavior 4e is readable and comprehensive; summarizing not only what is well documented but more importantly where cohesive understanding is lacking; and thus where further research will prove most profitable.”

The ebook reveals a richly illustrated panoramic view of animal behavior and; where it can; it also offers examples of the neurobiological; physiological and molecular genetic mechanisms that may underlie it. . . . Dugatkin’s textbook . . . can be enjoyed by anybody who has an interest in the beauty of animal behavior. . . . Excellent.” — Times Higher Education
