Most widely held works by Marian Stamp Dawkins
An introduction to animal behaviour by Aubrey Manning( Book )
40 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 1,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Wolves excitedly greet each other as members of the pack come together; a bumble bee uses its long tongue to reach the nectar at the base of a foxglove flower; a mongoose swiftly and deftly bites its prey to death; young cheetahs rest quietly together, very close to sleep. Now in full colour, this revised and updated edition of Manning and Dawkins' classic text provides a beautifully written introduction to the fundamentals of animal behaviour. Tinbergen's four questions of causation, evolution, development and function form the fundamental framework of the text, illustrated with fascinating examples of complex behavioural mechanisms. The authors provide accounts of all levels of behaviour from the nerve cell to that of the population. The strengths of An Introduction to Animal Behaviour as a textbook include its clear explanations and concise, readable text and the enthusiasm of the authors for their subject"--

Why animals matter : animal consciousness, animal welfare, and human well-being by Marian Stamp Dawkins( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book the author presents an illuminating and urgent argument for the need to rethink animal welfare. In the vein of Temple Grandin's work, the author explains that this welfare must be made to work in practice to have any effect, and cannot be tinged by anthropomorphism and claims of animal consciousness, which lack firm empirical evidence and are often freighted with controversy and high emotions. Instead, animal-welfare efforts must focus on science and on fully appreciating the critical role animals play in human welfare. With growing concern over such issues as climate change and food shortages, how we treat those animals on which we depend for survival needs to be put squarely on the public agenda. The author seeks to do this by offering a more complete understanding of how animals help us. In the end, it is human self-interest that will drive changes in our treatment of animals. Taking positions that might surprise and will certainly challenge animal lovers, she presents a persuasive argument for why animals truly matter. -- From publisher's website

The future of animal farming : renewing the ancient contract by Marian Stamp Dawkins( Book )
13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Does animal welfare have a place in sustainable farming, or do the demands of a rising human population and the threat of climate change mean that the interests of animals must be put aside? Can we improve the way we keep animals and still feed the world or is it a choice between ethics and economics?. The aim of this book is to challenge the "them-and-us" thinking that sets the interests of humans and farm animals against each other and to show that to be really "sustainable," farming needs to include, not ignore, animal welfare. The authors of this remarkable book come from a diversity of
