Sure to represent a benchmark of a vast literature from diverse disciplines, this reference work is a useful addition to any library devoted to animal learning, conditioning behavior, and interaction.


Advanced students, academics, comparative psychologists, researchers in cognition, education, perception, and decision-making.
