The biological and genetic bases of behavioral diversity have long been topics of study within many disciplines, including evolutionary biology, genetics, ethology, sociobiology, and comparative psychology, but only relatively recently have attempts been made to bring these different approaches together. This volume covers a wide range of interdisciplinary research which uses some of the newest and most promising methods and technologies. Presented here is an overview of findings in the ongoing search for the ultimate causes of behavior in several different species, including primates, dogs, rodents, birds, and fish. Divided into five parts, the work describes research on sexual and kin selection, personality and temperament, molecular genetics of personality, color vision and body coloration, and the neurological underpinnings of complex behaviors. Valuable for researchers as well as graduate students in a wide range of fields from neuroscience to ecology, the book is also useful to those seeking to move beyond the boundaries of their own discipline and to expand their knowledge.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This edited volume contains 19 chapters that span an interesting collection of topics primarily related to animal behavior or genetics of particular behavioral traits. ... This book would be useful for a graduate student seminar if the purpose was to expose students to an overview of a number of areas, particularly personality research." (Nancy G. Solomon, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 87 (2), June, 2012)
