Synopsis

Written by a world authority on animal behaviour this is a highly original contribution to the subject that covers behaviour and domestication of farm, zoo and companion animals. This book synthesizes existing knowledge of the process of domestication and how it has affected the behaviour of captive wild and domesticated animals. Three broad themes are addressed in the Chapter structure :Genetic contributions to the process of domestication, Experimental contributions to the process of domestication and The process of feralization (i.e. the adaptation of domesticated animals when returned to their natural habitat).
