Go wild with this set of encyclopedias!
<p>The Encyclopedia of Animal Behavior had to be a daunting task to put together. The three volumes provide an introductory overview on various behavior topics. I don¿t envy the editor (Marc Bekoff) who bravely tackled the task. <p>Anyone interested in animal related topics will find this three volume set useful. The up-to-date information contains contributions from many experts in a variety of fields. <p>Entries include submissions from disciplines such as entomology, psychology, biology, veterinary medicine, behavior and others. <p>One major difference is that it includes dialog regarding animal emotions, awareness, consciousness and empathy. These have been taboo topics in the past. <p>The other nice aspect of this work is the wide range of material it introduces. Regular behavior topics such as social organization, behavior patterns, animals as individuals and species, domestic and wild animals, and other related subjects such as careers are included. <p>The book is user friendly with reasonably sized articles, short sidebars and provocative essays.
