This text provides an introduction to the comparative study of human and animal behaviour, taking as its starting point the evolutionary pressures which have influenced the behaviour of humans and animals. This sociobiological perspective is outlined in the first chapter and forms the basis for discussion of adaptation to the environment, learning, communication and social behaviour.
