This latest 3rd edition has been substantially restructured to include both foundational information and recent developments in the field. Continuing the emphasis on interdisciplinary research and practical applications, the ebook includes articles aligned in 5 main subject sections, with new chapters included on genomic and genetic techniques and clinical investigations.
This reference provides unique treatment of all major invertebrate and vertebrate model systems with excellent opportunities for relating behavior to molecular genetics. The topics cover an unusual breadth (from ecophysiology to molecules), ranging from basic science to clinical research, making this reference of interest to a broad range of scientists in a variety of fields.
