A Dictionary of Animal Behaviour by David McFarland
This fascinating dictionary covers every aspect of
animal behaviour and includes terms from the related fields of ecology,
physiology and psychology. Clear, concise entries are backed up by specific
examples where appropriate, covering all aspects of behaviour from aggression to
courtship, and fully cross-referenced.
The author, David
McFarland, was formerly head of the Animal Behaviour Research Group at Oxford
University, and the editor of the Oxford Companion to Animal Behaviour (1981).
Jargon free and informative, this dictionary is an excellent source of reference
for students of biology and psychology, and essential reading for naturalists,
bird-watchers, and the general reader with an interest in animal behaviour.
