Foundations of animal behavior : classic papers with commentaries( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Highlighting more than a century of research, from Darwin's work in the 1870s to major contributions of the early 1970s, Foundations and Animals Behavior presents fourty-four classic papers in facsimile. These papers are classics because they either founded a line of investigation, established a basic method, or provided a new way of thinking about an important problem in studies of animal behavior." "The papers are divided into six sections, each introduced by prominent researchers in that area. Sections one and two cover the origins and history of the field and the emergence of basic methods and approaches to studying animal behavior, providing a background for sections three through six, which focus on the specific subfields of development and learning; neural and hormonal mechanisms of behavior; sensory processes, orientation, and communication; and the revolution of behavior." "This outstanding collection will serve as the basis for undergraduate and graduate seminars and as a reference for researchers in animal behavior, whether they focus on ethology, behavioral ecology, comparative psychology, or anthropology."--Jacket
Social play in primates by Animal Behavior Society( Book )

8 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social Play in Primates provides comprehensive discussions on the social aspect of play in the behavior of primates. It also presents various approaches in understanding the complex behavioral phenomenon of play. Composed of 11 chapters, the book starts by discussing the historical background of play. It also traces the development of the interest in the study of play from the writings of Aristotle, through educational reformers of the 17th and 18th centuries, to the psychologists of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The book then presents important data on the effects of gonadectomy on social play in group-living rhesus monkeys. It also presents a comparative study about the play behavior of three of the four great ape species. Furthermore, it offers a view of the function of play in primate society. Finally, the book examines play in young humans by citing some significant information on the nature of peer- vs. adult-oriented early social experience. The book concludes by presenting both the theoretical and methodological aspects on the study of play

Exploring animal behavior in laboratory and field : an hypothesis-testing approach to the development, causation, function, and evolution of animal behavior by Bonnie J Ploger( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring Animal Behavior in Laboratory and Field is designed to provide a variety of exercises that engage students actively in all phases of scientific investigation, from formulating research questions through interpreting and presenting final results. It attempts to share the collective teaching expertise and experience of members of the Animal Behavior Society with all who are willing to benefit from their wisdom. Four types of exercises are presented: (1) traditional exercises in which students follow a pre-determined protocol to test particular hypotheses explicitly stated in the exercise, (2) traditional exercises that can easily be adapted to inquiry-based approaches, (3) combined pedagogy exercises that involve both traditional and inquiry approaches, and (4) inquiry exercises in which students first brainstorm to generate their own hypotheses, then design their own experiements to test their hypotheses. * Supports a range of pedagogical styles and texts in animal behavior with active learning experiences that engage students * Students and instructors benefit from knowledge and experience of members of the Animal Behavior Society * Flexibility of design enables students and instrucotrs to tailor the exercises to their needs * Can be used to support lab courses that are completely inquiry based as well as independent student research projects in animal behavior * Consideration of animal care guidelines provides an excellent way to address and discuss concerns about the use of animals in teaching and research * Emphasizes the hypothetico-deductive approach that students have difficulty understanding and implementing * Supporting materials make additional required texts unnecessary and link study design considerations with real studies
