Mechanisms of animal behavior by Peter Marler( Book )

Social behavior and communication by Peter Marler( Book )

9 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Other books in this series focus on behavior at the individual level, approached from the viewpoints of biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, and psychology. In this volume we show how the functioning nervous systems of interacting individuals are coordinated, with the ultimate creation of complex social structures. The intri cacies of an individual's nervous system have been subject to intense inquiry, and research at the chemical, cellular, and organ levels has made remarkable progress. Work at the social level has been conducted somewhat independently, by way of behavioral phenomena and communicative interactions. With the emergence of a large body of information from neurobiology, the beginnings of an integrated approach are possible. New data on social functions are presented in the chapters to follow, and the forward-looking reader may wish to reflect on how they clarify understanding of interactions between two or more independent nervous systems. The outcome is harmonious social structure and improvement in the inclusive fitness of group-living individuals. We believe that there is in prospect a new way of looking at social function that will ultimately increase our understanding of the highest and most complex levels of neurobiology. The modern approach to the study of social behavior involves more than the recording of interactions between animals. Each individual brings to the process of social interaction the implications of its prior genetic and experiential history
Nature's music : the science of birdsong by Peter Marler( Book )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nature's Music brings together some of the world's experts on birdsong, to review the advances that have taken place in our undestanding of how and why birds sing, what their songs and calls mean, and how they have evolved. All contributors have strived to speak, not only to fellow experts, but also to the general reader. The result is a book of readable science, richly illustrated with recordings and pictures of the sounds of birds"--Jacket

Handbook of behavioral neurobiology. Neurobiology of food and fluid intake, 2nd edition( Book )

4 editions published between 1978 and 2004 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 14 is an updated version of Volume 10 in the Handbook of Behavioral Neurobiology series. This time, Edward Stricker is joined by co-editor Stephen Woods, whose psychiatry affiliation balances Dr. Stricker's more physiological approach. Volume 14 provides the reader with a wide variety of perspectives on the enormous changes that have occurred in the study of food and fluid intake since the first edition of Neurobiology of Food and Fluid Intake published 14 years ago. As with the first edition, multiple viewpoints on issues of clinical significance and basic studies using laboratory animals are revealed, as world renowned experts in the field discuss homeostasis in various areas of alimentary behaviour and brain function. The text details the integration of the biological and behavioral contributions to homeostasis and the way in which basic neuroscientific studies of animal subjects can be used to illuminate parallel clinical phenomena in human subjects. Four retrospective essays on how the field has developed have been added to this new edition, and all chapters have been updated to integrate new material.; New chapters in Volume 14 include motivation, food intake, body fluids, and an entirely new section on Reward, an important topic to cover in any study of motivated behaviour. Volume 14 of Handbook of Behavioral Neurobiology will be a valuable addition to the libraries of those interested in the study of neurosciences, nutrition, physiology, behavioral medicine, psychiatry, and neuroendocrinology

Cognitive ethology : the minds of other animals : essays in honor of Donald R. Griffin by Carolyn A Ristau( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays was written by former students, associates, admirers, critics and friends of Donald R. Griffin -- the creator of cognitive ethology. Stimulated by his work, this volume presents ideas and experiments in the field of cognitive ethology -- the exploration of the mental experiences of animals as they behave in their natural environment during the course of their normal lives. Cognitive Ethology discusses the possibility that animals may have abilities to experience, communicate, reason, and plan beyond those usually ascribed to them in a "black box" or "stimulus-response" interpretation of their behavior. Contributions from scientists who have been associated with or influenced by Griffin offer a lively array of views, some disparate from one another and some especially selected to present approaches contrary to his
