    schema:description "Animals regularly come into conflict with other members of their own species; this book is about the behaviour used by animals (both human and non-human) to resolve conflicts of interest and how aggression relates to their ecological and social environment. A wide range of important issues are introduced, the scene having first been set by a survey of the variety of aggressive behaviour shown by different animal groups. Widely used concepts such as threats, ritualized fighting, territory, dominance and the use of alternative strategies are defined and discussed. The book goes on to look at different facets of the biological study of animal conflict, taking in turn motivational studies and the role of environmental stimuli; the hormonal and neurophysiological bases of agonistic behaviour; genetic and environmental influences on its development; the consequences of conflict for the individual, population, community and species; the evolutionary history of fighting behaviour and its adaptive significance. Finally, the relevance of these different kinds of study to our understanding of human aggression is discussed. -- from back cover."@en ;
