THE COURTSHIP OF ANIMALS

This is another title in a logical progression of books by this author dealing with animal behavior -- The Language of Animals came in 1962, How Animals Live Together in 1963. The rigid patterns of behavior that govern the courtship and mating of animals, fish, birds and insects are handled with dignity and illustrated in excellent drawings. The role of courtships -- to attract and stimulate a partner -- and the goal of courtship -- to mate and carry on a species- is described in brisk detail that has all the lure of the odd fact as well as the basics of biology and psychology going for it.
