The study of instinct by Niko Tinbergen( Book )

Nikolaas Tinbergen won a Nobel Prize in 1973 for his pioneering studies in animal behavior. The Study of Instinct, Tinbergen's first major work, introduced the subject of ethology to an American audience more than forty years ago, and it is still considered one of the best introductions to the field. Long out of print, this reissue of the 1969 edition allows a new generation of readers to explore this classic for themselves. In The Study of Instinct, Tinbergen attempts to organize the study of animal behavior into a coherent whole, focusing on how animals behave in response to stimuli, how physical and neurological characteristics shape instinct, how individual animals develop behavioral patterns, and how they adapt to changing conditions. He illustrates his discussion with fascinating examples taken from his own and other scientists' study of animals. Many of his renowned experiments using models of animals to test hypotheses about behavior are described, including his well-known study of the stickleback fish, in which he shows that it is indeed the red color of their undersides that allows males to single each other out for attack during their springtime competition

Tinbergen's legacy in Behaviour : sixty years of landmark stickleback papers by Niko Tinbergen( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a flurry of post-war productivity, Niko Tinbergen re-established his lab in Leiden, wrote landmark papers and his famous book The Study of Instinct, and founded the journal Behaviour to serve the burgeoning field of ethology. Tinbergen and his senior assistant, Jan van Iersel, published their classic paper, "Displacement reactions in the three-spined stickleback," in the first issue of the journal in 1948. Stickleback are now a powerful model in the fields of behavioral ecology, evolutionary biology, developmental genetics, and ecotoxicology - an extraordinary development for a small fish that began its modeling career among an enthusiastic core of Tinbergen students in the 1930s. From a series of clever experiments with painted model fish to the use of the sequenced genome to analyze the genetic basis of courtship, stickleback science progressed in leaps and bounds, often via seminal studies published in the pages of Behaviour. traces sixty years in the development of science using stickleback as a model, with 34 original articles covering topics ranging from homosexuality and cannibalism to genetics and speciation. Desmond Morris, Theo Bakker, Robert Wootton, Michael Bell, Tom Reimchen, Boyd Kynard, Harman Peeke, and Iain Barber provide fresh retrospectives on their republished works. Commentary by Frank von Hippel accompanies the articles
