Hormones, Brain, and Behavior
Carl Gans, David Crews
University of Chicago Press, Jun 1, 1992 - Nature - 578 pages
This is the first volume to integrate information on ways in which the nervous and endocrine systems interact to mediate crucial aspects of reptile behavior. Although the authors pay particular attention to reproductive behavior, from initial recognition and evaluation of potential partners to decisions about reproduction, they also deal with other survival behaviors.
