About the Edition

THIS book is a revised and translated version of a Dutch text which originally appeared in 1946. Tinbergen had written it during the war, much of it when he was imprisoned in a German hostage camp. He based it largely on his own observations and research which he had carried out in the late 1920s and the 1930s, a time that included the seven years in which he introduced the newly developing discipline of ethology into the biological curriculum of the University of Leiden. [...]

The original Dutch title can be translated as "Animal Sociology". The book was conceived at a time when in botany plant sociology had become very popular. This made ecologically oriented zoologists keen to develop a zoological counterpart. Tinbergen, however, pointed out that whereas plant sociology was mainly concerned with types of vegetation and the relationships between different species of plants, animal sociology should primarily focus upon the interrelationships between individuals of the same species, and should thus be seen as more closely allied to human sociology.

The book has become a classic. [...]

Before he died in December 1988, Tinbergen felt somewhat ambivalent about the appearance of a facsimile edition of his book. On the one hand he liked the idea because he believed its educational value had not diminished. On the other hand, he was aware that the book contained certain interpretations of behaviour which no longer hold today and which he himself had abandoned or revised. This, however, only demonstrates how productive Tinbergen"s approach has been; it has contributed to the spectacular development of the discipline of behavioural ecology in the last three decades. At the request of the publisher I have in the following tried to point out, for newcomers in this field in particular, where views have changed importantly, combining this with a rough sketch of the trends taken in behavioural ecology.

The book pioneered and popularized the attempt to explain the evolutionary mechanics behind social behaviors such as altruism, aggression, and nurturance, primarily in ants (Wilson's own research specialty) and other Hymenoptera, but also in other animals. However, the influence of evolution on behavior has been of interest to biologists and. This social behaviour can take various forms. Sometimes animals exist in pairs, sometimes in larger groupings, flocks, herds or schools. This chapter sets out to show how these forms of social organization can be the result of natural selection and the genes that individual animals : Tony Malim, Ann Birch.

The chapters fall into three broad subject areas. The study of social behaviour remains active, involving the investigation of proximate mechanisms (that is, behaviour triggered by immediate stimuli coming from the outside world or inside the body), the survival and reproductive consequences of sociality, and the evolution of human behaviour and cultural traditions.

Social behaviorists today study a wide range of species from. Cats are social animals that, in feral conditions, live in groups consisting mainly of queens and their litters.

The density of the group depends partly on food resources. Because cats have been exposed to less selective breeding than dogs, there is far less breed diversity and a much narrower range of differences in both physical and.
