Overview
Now in paperback If you think that watching all the nature programs on television qualifies you as an expert on the subject, think again Do you really know what makes animals tick? Here are the answers, portrayed with stunning, informative graphics and explained in fascinating, in-depth prose.

Thematically arranged by behavior trait, Animal Life explores and explains every aspect of animal behavior, including courtship rituals and sex lives, family relationships and defense mechanisms, hunting techniques and feeding habits. Side panels explore some of the field research on animal behavior and explain important conservation issues.

The introductory chapters on the animal kingdom and animal anatomy help explain how different animals have evolved and adapted to their environments, adaptations that may be relevant to particular behaviors. Destined to be the ultimate authority on animal behavior, this book also looks at key behavioral concepts such as how animals learn to behave and the role of instinct in the learning process.
