Book Description

Sept. 3 2007 0521535638 978-0521535632 Updated edition
Measuring Behaviour has established itself as a standard text. Largely rewritten, updated and reorganised, this third edition is, as before, a guide to the principles and methods of quantitative studies of behaviour, with an emphasis on techniques of observation, recording and analysis. It provides the basic knowledge needed to measure behaviour, doing so in a succinct and easily understood form. The sections on research design and the interpretation and presentation of data have been greatly expanded. Written with brevity and clarity, Measuring Behaviour is, above all, a practical guide book. Aimed primarily at undergraduate and graduate students in biology and psychology who are about to embark upon quantitative studies of animal and human behaviour, this book provides a concise review of methodology that will be of great value to scientists of all disciplines in which behaviour is measured, including biological anthropology, the social sciences and medicine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect introduction May 28 2000
Format:Paperback
This book is a perfect introduction to the field of behavioral data collection. I purchased this book for my first behavioral study of captive primates and it was extremely helpful. If you have never conducted research in this area, this book is a must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, but too expensive. April 25 2009
By Mariela G - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really like this book, its well written and concise, but it very short and too expensive for what you get. I have no other books like this so I don't know if it worth a buy anyway.
4.0 out of 5 stars Really clear and easy to read Dec 12 2013
By Mathieu Léger-Dalcourt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Really clear and easy to read. Good for beginners, but too superficial to be of real help with designing your research if taken alone. Really good introduction though.

As far as textbooks go this one was very enjoyable. (Meaning it didn't feel like walking through mud)
It is very easy to understand and full of useful information.
