Field and Laboratory Exercises in Animal Behavior is an interactive laboratory manual for students in animal behavior, ethology, and behavioral ecology. It is the first of its kind in this subject area that guides students through the diverse and fascinating fields of behavioral and ethological studies, employing a wide array of organisms as model systems for the study of behavior. Students participate in the development of hypothesis and turn the recording, analysis, and interpretation of data into an active and engaging process. A teacher-friendly companion website provides extensive teaching notes on the background to each lab project, tips and hints for successful project presentation, sources for studying organisms, ideas for variations in labs, and alternate study organisms. This text is recommended for undergraduate courses in Animal Behavior, Ethology, and Behavioral Ecology.

"I particularly like the introductory chapters about conducting independent research and presenting results. I like the range of exercises offered and the fact that many different types of study organisms are used." - Mansfield University "I like that it describes how to come up with independent projects in animal behavior and it has lots of feasible field studies that can be done anywhere." -Birmingham-Southern College "I really like the way it takes students through the thought processes involved in a discovery exercise (the way I teach this course)." -The College of Mount Saint Vincent
