Animal Science Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Perspectives on Animal Behavior
Third Edition
by Judith Goodenough

Perspectives on Animal Behavior introduces biologists and psychologists to the scientific reasoning and methodology in the field while also addressing development and mechanisms.

Rather than just focusing on evolutionary behavior, Perspectives on Animal Behavior presents a variety of different perspectives including genetics, neurological, learning, and behavioral ecology.

The third edition walks them through experimentation and data analysis, which are critical in the field. It includes classical studies that form the foundation of this field but concentrates on more current work in order to present the thinking and experiments.
