Review "Usually we do not publish reviews of second and subsequent edition books, but for this we make an exception. Andrew F G Bourke. NO YES. Intended for graduate and upper level undergraduate courses in behavioural ecology where students are already familiar with the basic ideas, this book continues to define the subject. Nicholas B. However, at individual colonies some specialisation occurs to take advantage of locally available prey. Evolutionary Analysis 5th Edition.
Animal behavior has long been studied and described, but it is only with the rigors of evolutionary thought that they are explained and understood, as evident by this book. This field has progressed much in the last few decades, and most would be surprised at how developed and rigorous it has become. The mathematical models presented are for the most part simple to understand and they adequately synthesize empirical evidence.
If you are looking for an introduction to the field, start with their book, An Introduction to Behaviour Ecology. The book basically summarises, without going too much into mathematical modelling which is such a hit with behavioural ecologist seeking regonition of their subject as a HARD science, just like experimental psychologists were doing in the 70's coming up with all sorts if theorem and formulas predicting and quantifying the learning process to no avail though , the latest developments NOT adavnces, as most of the theoretical breakthroughs and insights were back in the late 70's in the field, though I would suggest the money is better spent on the great works of William Hamilton, in 2 volumes, Narrow Roads to Gene Land, or the book Sperm Competition and Sexual Selection edited by Tim Birkhead, whereby you can have an in depth exposition on inclusive fitness and the evolution of sex.
