The tenth edition features a major reorganisation, focusing first on the evolutionary basis of behavior followed by the underlying proximate mechanisms. Enduring features of previous editions also remain; the clear engaging writing style, the beautifully illustrated text with many new photographs and numerous references to new scientific articles.
