The purpose of Advances within the learn of habit continues to be because it has been because the sequence all started: to serve the expanding variety of scientists who're engaged within the learn of animal habit through proposing their theoretical principles and examine to their colleagues and to these in neighboring fields. we are hoping that the sequence will proceed its "contribution to the advance of the field", as its meant position used to be phrased within the Preface to the 1st quantity in 1965. on account that that point, conventional components of animal habit have accomplished new vigour through the hyperlinks they've got shaped with similar fields and by way of the nearer courting that now exists among these learning animal and human matters. Advances within the research of habit, quantity 31 maintains to serve scientists throughout a large spectrum of disciplines. targeting new theories and examine advancements with admire to behavioral ecology, evolutionary biology, and comparative psychology, those volumes foster cooperation and communications in those dense fields.
