About this book

Introduction

For thirty years, Insect Behavior served as students’ sole overview of a field of study that is growing exponentially. Considerably updated and expanded, this second edition still retains its constructive balance between modern developments and historical insights, between new examples and old, between empirical work and theory, and between pertinent conclusions and the dynamic field and laboratory experiences from which such discoveries arise. Twenty-six case studies, 45 new color plates and 173 figures (over 40% of them new) add richness to the well-written, accessible text.
