about

This is the first volume to integrate information on ways in which the nervous and endocrine systems interact to mediate crucial aspects of reptile behavior. Although the authors pay particular attention to reproductive behavior, from initial recognition and evaluation of potential partners to decisions about reproduction, they also deal with other survival behaviors.
Carl Gans is professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Michigan. He is the editor of the Journal of Morphology. David Crews is professor of zoology and psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. He is a coeditor of Behavioral Endocrinology.
