Summary
  • "Animal Behavior: Concepts, Methods, and Applications uses a conceptual approach that puts the process of science and applications front and center. The text guides students through featured research examples that strongly emphasize the process of scientific inquiry. The approach is based on the growing mandate to shift science education from rote memorization to a conceptual approach that emphasizes the nature of inquiry in science." -- Publisher's description
  • Focusing on big-picture concepts and the nature of scientific inquiry, Animal Behavior: Concepts, Methods, and Applications gives students the tools that they need in order to understand and evaluate research examples and develop higher-order critical-thinking skills. Shawn E. Nordell and Thomas J. Valone build each chapter around broad organizing concepts, offering students a clear learning progression and a solid framework for scaffolding their knowledge. Each concept is illustrated using research from the primary literature with an emphasis on the methods of the featured studies. The authors clearly identify the research question, hypothesis, and prediction for each featured study and then demonstrate how the methods allow the prediction to be tested. Many of the data figures throughout the text present means with standard errors, as they would typically appear in the primary literature. To help students understand the significance of what they are studying, each chapter contains examples of how various people and groups are applying the concepts in animal behavior research to societal problems and issues
