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.

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.

By Patricia MacDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a fourth-year undergrad doing research with birds. This is a great starter text to use for a quick overview of all aspects of research techniques. Not so detailed that its daunting to read, but covers all the basics to keep in mind when designing and conducting research projects. A good reference to keep close at hand.
