This review is from: A Dictionary of Animal Behaviour (Oxford Quick Reference) (Paperback)
I have been absolutely let down by this book, I bought it to help with my animal behaviour degree and I've found it covers only extremely basic behavioural concepts, and is out of date and at times, completely inaccurate. Some of the terms in there are pointless, and would be found in any dictionary, for example 'colour vision', 'balance', 'flight', 'hatching' and 'hearing' to name just a few. As much as these terms are related to animal behaviour they are a waste of space when simple concepts such as cognitive maps are not mentioned in the book. I've since bought The Dictionary of Zoology which is more useful.
