evolution of animal behavior, including neural, hormonal, and genetic substrates
of behavior, foraging, anti-predator defenses, mating systems and sexual
selection, social behavior, communication, parental care, kin selection and

In preparing the material for
this book, the author has endeavored to arrange and discuss the subject matter
in a way to be of the greatest service and help to the agricultural student and
stockman, and place at their disposal a text and reference book.The general
discussions at the beginning of the different sections and chapters, and the
discussions of the different diseases are naturally brief.The chapters have been
grouped under the necessary heads, with review questions at the end of each
chapter, and the book divided into seven parts.
This book is a
compendium of contributions to some of the many different topics related to the

scientific names formed, Formation and treatment, Ruling principles of
nomenclature, Principles of binominal nomenclature, Principles of homonymy and

This paper brings up to date the information available on Indo-Australian
basicero tines. A second Rhopalothrix species is described and two new
Melanesian Eurhopalothrix species are added, along with systematic and
distributional notes on some older species, and a key to the Indo- Australian
