Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, 1995 - Medical - 671 pages
Animal Behavior Desk Reference is the largest, most complete work of its kind. It is an annotated dictionary intended to help improve scientific communication, particularly in the fields of animal behavior, evolution, ecology, and related branches of biology.
The Animal Behavior Desk Reference provides definitions for terms in animal behavior, evolution, ecology, genetics, biogeography, systematics, psychology, and statistics. Formatted much like a standard English dictionary, it references term definitions, organism examples related to terms, synonyms, and controversies regarding particular terms with author-date citations. For many terms, the dictionary indicates variations in meaning by giving more than one definition in chronological order.
This easy-to-use reference is essential for teachers, researchers, writers, editors, and other persons interested in biology and animal behavior.
