Description: Fish exhibit a wide array of fascinating behaviours. In a scientific way, this book looks at what fishes do and how they do it. From defending their young, to seeking out the perfect sexual partner, to telling time, fishes display a variety of behaviours that may not be readily apparent to the casual observer. The author describes the behaviours, outlines simple experiments that can be performed by observers wishing to learn for themselves how resourceful and bizarre these creatures can be. How Fish Behave introduces us to damselfishes that sing like birds, elephantfishes that communicate electrically, and sticklebacks that deceive other fish into believing they have found food. Drawing on the experimental evidence behind such intrisically interesting responses, the author demonstrates how science is conducted in the field of animal behaviour.
