United States and its dependencies only

Niko Tinbergen is one of the grand masters of ethology, and the papers published here are among its most important documents: they are a source-book for students of animal behaviour and will give the historian of ideas an insight into the early days of one of the most influential movements in modern science.—Sir Peter Medawar

The publication of the Tinbergen papers is a service to a large and growing audience if scholars. These articles are not only of considerable historical value lout to a remarkable extent retain their usefulness as a primary Source if data and ideas.—Edward O. Wilson, Professor of Zoology, Harvard University
