This volume delves into the mechanisms and early principles of developmental psychobiology, neurobiology, and behavioral ecology. It reflects the three mainstreams of the discipline of proximal and biographical influences: neural mediation; development and flexibility and functionally significant changes that occur in the habitats of many species; as well as how connections have been forged among the disciplines.
