Reviews

From the reviews:

“Yahner (Penn State) covers the field of wildlife behavior and conservation in 18 short chapters. He begins with a chapter that defines his topic and compares ethology and comparative psychology approaches. … an ideal resource for an upper-level or graduate seminar. It would also be a quick read for anyone interested in animal behavior. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and general readers.” (L. T. Spencer, Choice, Vol. 49 (11), July, 2012)
