Rezensionen
From the reviews:

This is a well-organized volume about animal behaviour and behavioural ecology. The editor of this book, Dr. Peter Kappeler, is a prominent primate researcher who has edited several books that have had a strong impact on primate research. (...) I recommend this book to all students and researchers studying the behavioural ecology of primates.

Primates, 2010

"This work is a large, weighty, informative ... set of edited chapters on many aspects of animal behavior. Kappeler ... tried to unify the 21 chapters by asking authors to focus on mechanisms and evolution. ... All provide thorough reviews and formidable reference lists. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and above." (J. A. Mather, Choice, Vol. 48 (3), November, 2010)
