This book illustrates how the profound changes in our understanding of evolution have influenced behavioral research. Its chapters span both studies of how behavior itself has evolved, dealing with topics such as comparative studies, the genetics of behavior, speciation, and the evolution of sociality and of intelligence, and also the adaptiveness that this evolution has brought about, with treatment of mating and fighting strategies, and theories of kinship and altruism.
