About the book

Animal behavior is an animal's response to an action, environment, person, or stimulus after the integration of genetic, sensory, neural, endocrine, and influencer components. The success of the response is an important factor for the survival of living things and the continuation of the species. Learning the behavior is a very important issue that serves as a guide in the adaptation and management of living things. This book, it is aimed to explain the history of behavioral science (Ethology), instinct, domestication, the effects of physiological and biochemical factors, hormones, and the nervous system on animal behavior. Moreover, there will be a comprehensive overview of genetic control of animal behavior, animal learning, offspring care, defense, foraging, sexual behavior, social behavior, migration, sleep, navigation, studies on animal behavior, abnormal animal behavior, and the factors that can cause these behaviors. The book will be an alternative resource for students and educators in biology, veterinary medicine, agriculture, psychology, sociology, and environmental sciences.
