Excerpt from Labor Saving in Live-Stock Production: Prepared in the Animal Husbandry Division If this feature of the labor problem is generally recognized by giving the women and children more than a laborer's interest in the animals, a most important influence will be brought to bear on the stability of the country population. A woman Or child on the farm who has a proprietary interest in some of the animals on the farm will be much less likely to become dissatisfied with farm life. It is possible that the germ of a most important development will be found in this feature of labor saving. Women from time immemorial have been interested in live stock production, but animal husbandry, as we know it, as a. Profession has been one of the last for women to take up. Now, however, young women from the best families are beginning to take the animal-husbandry courses in the agricultural colleges. They have won distinction in the stock-judging contest at the: International Live Stock Exposition, and one of these young women has already been appointed as scientific assistant in Animal Husbandry in the United States Bureau of Animal Industry. The third general consideration to be mentioned is the possibility of retired farmers who are skilled live-stock producers resuming in part their farming operations. Every country town has a large num ber of men who have made a success in farming, and many of these men have been among our best live stock breeders and feeders. Often they are in perfect health, with time to spare, and they have frequently left the farm in order to turn over its management to a son or other relative. The war is already bringing thousands of these men back into active service. They can not, of course, do so much Of the. Heavy work on the farms as their sons and grandsons, but they can materially relieve other labor supplies in the care of animals.

This volume presents the intricate ways in which sperm compete to fertilize eggs and how this has prompted reinterpretations of breeding behavior from a biological perspective. Sperm Competition in Humans: Classic and Contemporary Readings provides a theoretical framework for the study of sperm competition and also discusses the roles of females and the relationships between paternal care in sperm competition. The chapters focus on everything from evolutionary biology to taxonomic development.

Contests are an important aspect of the lives of diverse animals, from sea anemones competing for space on a rocky shore to fallow deer stags contending for access to females. Why do animals fight? What determines when fights stop and which contestant wins? Addressing fundamental questions on contest behaviour, this volume presents theoretical and empirical perspectives across a range of species. The historical development of contest research, the evolutionary theory of both dyadic and multiparty contests, and approaches to experimental design and data analysis are discussed in the first chapters. This is followed by reviews of research in key animal taxa, from the use of aerial displays and assessment rules in butterflies and the developmental biology of weapons in beetles, through to interstate warfare in humans. The final chapter considers future directions and applications of contest research, making this a comprehensive resource for both graduate students and researchers in the field.

Beginning with Darwin's work in the 1870s, Foundations of Animal Behavior selects the most important works from the discipline's first hundred years—forty-four classic papers—and presents them in facsimile, tracing the development of the field. These papers are classics because they either founded a line of investigation, established a basic method, or provided a new approach to an important research question. The papers are divided into six sections, each introduced by prominent researchers. Sections one and two cover the origins and history of the field and the emergence of basic methods and approaches. They provide a background for sections three through six, which focus on development and learning; neural and hormonal mechanisms of behavior; sensory processes, orientation, and communication; and the evolution of behavior. This outstanding collection will serve as the basis for undergraduate and graduate seminars and as a reference for researchers in animal behavior, whether they focus on ethology, behavioral ecology, comparative psychology, or anthropology.

Mites are very small animals, characterized by wingless and eyeless bodies, in which sociality has been discovered. This book offers detailed descriptions of the diverse social systems and the social evolution of mites, ranging from genetic to ecological aspects. Through a broad spectrum of studies including traditional natural history, taxonomy, modern evolutionary and behavioral ecology, and theoretical models as well, the book addresses a number of important findings on plant mite evolution and species radiation, with the author succeeding in combining theoretical and practical approaches in behavioral ecology by proposing a new game theory. These findings reflect the complex evolutionary history of these taxa and also help to point out clearly what is known and what is not yet known to date. Mites have been considered a minor animal group, but the author shows that mites actually possess great diversity and therefore make unique materials for evolutionary and behavioral studies.
