5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent book, 5 July 2012

This review is from: An Introduction to Behavioural Ecology 4th Edition (Paperback)
This book is outstanding. Superbly written, engaging, and packed full of memorable case studies encompassing both the classic and recent experiments. This book illustrates the power of evolutionary thinking to understand the natural world. It will help inspire a new generation of behavioural ecologists - how could it not when the authors represent three generations of leaders of the field? I mean Lord Krebs, Prof Davies and Prof West as the authors?! You can't get much more senior than that!

It's of course a key text for biology and ecology undergraduates, but economists, social scientists and members of the public interested in evolution and behaviour will also find it an accessible introduction the field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very recommended, 21 April 2012

This review is from: An Introduction to Behavioural Ecology 4th Edition (Paperback)
A fantastic synthesis of the main topics in Behavioural ecology. Well written, easy on the eye and easy to read. For professionals on the field who might consider it brief in certain areas, it includes additional suggestions on bibliography for further reading on the discussed topics. I found it very useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Edition!, 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Introduction to Behavioural Ecology 4th Edition (Paperback)
I bought this as the older edition is far too old to refer from, for assignments. The older version was a great book to introduce the subject, so the newer version has the needed updates for the subject matter; as with all good science subjects, they are progressive over time with new insights within recent research etc.

This review is from: An Introduction to Behavioural Ecology 4th Edition (Paperback)
Found myself reading this book for enjoyment, even laughed out loud a few times while reading it on the train. Really great, well written and keeps you interested throughout, doesn't repeat its self like some text books can. Really recommend for any one who likes animals.

This is a non academic review . I know it is an academic text and used on taught uni courses
For us people in the street it is a good introduction to new views on Ethology and the contribution of nobel prize wining Tinbergen.
His four questions come up early and often

Clearly not written with the telegraph cross word completing public in mind,
Uses the scientific induction method often and well - presents data and encourages the reader to draw conclusions from the data

well worth the cost
