Since man interacts with other animals at many different levels, using them as sources of food, raw materials, transport and companionship as well as competing with them for resources, how we manage their behaviour is of great importance. This book brings together a collection of reviews that deal with how an understanding of the methods, theories and facts provided by ethology (the scientific study of animal behaviour) can help us to manage the behaviour of animals. The book looks at this subject in such areas as improving productivity in agriculture and aquaculture, improving the welfare of captive animals, dealing with difficult pets, promoting the conservation of endangered species and finding humane solutions to deal with animal pests. The chapters discuss the theoretical background on which such work is based and provide a broad range of examples. This book illustrates that the modern science of ethology has an important contribution to make in solving the problems we face in managing animal behaviour. This book should be of interest to students on courses in animal behaviour and research workers in zoology, agriculture, veterinary science and psychology.
