Behavioral Genetics to Evolution

Barry Sinervo. Professor of Ecology and Evolution, University of California - Santa Cruz

Behavioral Genetics to Evolution explores the foundations of Behavioral Ecology up to the present day. The book covers Genetic, Genomic, Neuroendocrine, Ecological and Evolutionary aspects of Behavioral Ecology with a set of classic studies, as well as new cutting-edge and innovative studies. The examples are threaded together with a game theory perspective that the author has adopted during his research career. This thread provides new directions for empirical and theoretical work.
