Morse, I believe, is the first in two decades to have provided an integrated treatment of the ecological problems of interest to ethologists which at the same time meets the criteria of scholarly thoroughness and accuracy… An essential volume for ecologists!—P. H. Klopfer, Ecology

This synthesis and integration of behavioral ecology into a unified framework will, in my opinion, prove extremely valuable to many evolutionary and ecologically oriented biologists, as well as to any serious student of animal biology. The clear, uncomplicated style of the writing will assure its accessibility to any educated reader.—Richard T. Holmes, Dartmouth College
