A helpful guide to the often confusing lexicon of ethology. Words such as ‘instinct,’ ‘territory,’ and ‘courtship’ have very specialized meanings in ethology, often very different from common usage… Immelmann’s dictionary is highly recommended for all college and university libraries and for large public libraries.Choice

This dictionary clearly and accurately defines more than 600 terms used in ethology, the science of animal behavior, in entries of one or two paragraphs.—Jonathan Husband, Library Journal
