Animal behavior : an introduction
Understanding of ethological knowledge is both a necessary tool for getting correct identification. This text addresses the physiological foundations of behavior in a way that is both accessible and inviting. The study of animal behavior begins with understanding how an animal’s physiology and anatomy are integrated with its behavior. Both external and internal stimuli prompt behaviors — external information or weather and internal information. Understanding how genes and the environment come together to shape animal behavior is also an important underpinning of the field. Animal Behavior is the scientific study of the wild and wonderful ways in which animals interact with each other, with other living beings, and with the environment. It explores how animals relate to their physical environment as well as to other organisms, and includes topics such as how animals find and defend resources, avoid predators, choose mates, reproduce, and care for their young.
