Handbook of Ethological Methods

Handbook of Ethological Methods Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At first glance, studying behavior is easy, but as every budding ethologist quickly realizes, there are a host of complex practical, methodological and analytical problems to solve before designing and conducting the study. How do you choose which species or which behavior to study? What equipment will you need to observe and record behavior successfully? How do you record data in the dark, in the wet, or without missing part of the action? How do you analyze and interpret the data to yield meaningful information? This new expanded edition of the Handbook of Ethological Methods provides a complete step-by-step introduction to ethological methods from topic choice and behavioral description to data collection and statistical analysis. This book is a must for both beginning students and experienced researchers studying animal behavior in the field or laboratory.

Synopsis:

A thoroughly updated and expanded step-wise guide to the study of animal behaviour.

In any study of behavior, one must first choose which species or which behavior to study, how to study it and how to record and analyse the results.
