Stephen Simpson and David Raubenheimer bring together disparate strands of animal behaviour into a readable but detailed account of the motivations that drive appetite and nutrient-selection. There is a lot of information about insect nutrition, but this reflects the authors` earlier research and illustrates that insects and mammals are not so different. This also helps to balance the tendency to concentrate on mammals in a lot of nutritional research. Overall an excellent book.
