Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(5), 436–437. Reviews the book, Behavioural ecology: An evolutionary approach edited by J. R. Krebs and N. B. Davies (1978). This multi-authored book will appeal to a relatively small group of psychologists, those concerned with the application of “sociobiological” principles to the study of naturally occurring behavioral patterns in nonhuman animals. The present 14 chapters are aimed primarily at exploring theoretical implications in a set of areas whose selection is “unashamedly biased.” This work provides a valuable and exciting set of sociobiological investigations that should be on the bookshelf of every specialist in the area.
