Book Description

23 Aug 2007 0521535638 978-0521535632 Updated edition
Measuring Behaviour has established itself as a standard text. Largely rewritten, updated and reorganised, this third edition is, as before, a guide to the principles and methods of quantitative studies of behaviour, with an emphasis on techniques of observation, recording and analysis. It provides the basic knowledge needed to measure behaviour, doing so in a succinct and easily understood form. The sections on research design and the interpretation and presentation of data have been greatly expanded. Written with brevity and clarity, Measuring Behaviour is, above all, a practical guide book. Aimed primarily at undergraduate and graduate students in biology and psychology who are about to embark upon quantitative studies of animal and human behaviour, this book provides a concise review of methodology that will be of great value to scientists of all disciplines in which behaviour is measured, including biological anthropology, the social sciences and medicine.

4.0 out of 5 stars perfect starter 4 Dec 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This was a brilliantly written book, it gives clear and concise information on the various methods behind measuring animal behaviour. I am an animal science student and used this book to plan and write my thesis. I would advise it as a must buy or anyone starting out in the study of animal behaviour, or merely has an interest in the subject as the book is not too long and tells you what you need to know without baffling you with scientific "lingo".

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for behaviour students 4 April 2010
By Jon A
Format:Paperback
Has always been the key text for a How To guide of behavioural studies. Has all the principles of observation schedules answering questions such as how does instantaneous sampling compare with continuous (dull but important!), a straightforward description of appropriate statistics (including interobserver stuff) and other essential stuff that is not easy to find elsewhere.

This edition is more streamlined and is cut down a lot from the previous one (the extra is still available online) and provides a complete guide to designing proper behavioural studies. Every behaviour should read this, learn it and use it! (A Lecturer talking...)

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for beginners - like me. 4 April 2011
Format:Paperback
I needed this book in order to write an essay. I could not source it from local library or college library. I was nearing the end of my assignment when the book arrived, although the seller had despatched it very quickly. Suddenly everything became very clear, if only I had read this book first. Very useful diagrams which explain things clearly. I will be using this book again for revision and for another course which I will be studying - Research methods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 25 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A must have for anyone who is studying behaviour; especially if you are planning on doing data collection and behavioural studies. Covers everything you need to know, where to start and offers solutions to problems you may occur. This has been highly recommended to be by my lectures and I am very happy I have bought it for my dissertation behaviour studies at zoological parks
