Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(2), 105–106. Reviews the book, Advances in the Study of Behavior, Vol. 8 edited by Jay S. Rosenblatt, Robert A. Hinde, Colin Beer, and Marie-Claire Busnel (1978). During the past 14 years, the series Advances in the Study of Behavior has established a firm reputation for articles of consistently high quality. Although the composition of the editorial staff has changed periodically, the series has remained faithful to the original aim of providing incisive critical reviews on wide-ranging topics in the study of animal behavior. In the second, third, and fourth chapters of this volume, chemical influences upon behavior are explored. In the second, Robert Hinde and Elizabeth Steel address a specific feature of hormonebehavior relationships that has been often overlooked. The volume moves from hormones and vertebrate behavior in the second chapter to pheromones and invertebrate behavior in the third. In short, this volume maintains the same high quality as that of its predecessors in the series. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
