Abstract:

In Patterns of Behavior, Richard W. Burkhardt Jr. traces the scientific theories, practices, subjects, and settings integral to the construction of a discipline pivotal to our understanding of the diversity of life. Central to this tale are Konrad Lorenz and Niko Tinbergen, 1973 Nobel laureates whose research helped legitimize the field of ethology and bring international attention to the culture of behavioural research. Demonstrating how matters of practice, politics, and place all shaped "ethology's ecologies," the book offers a reading of the complex interplay of the field's celebrated pioneers and a reconstruction of ethology's transformation from a quiet backwater of natural history to the forefront of the biological sciences.
