About the Book

Proceedings of the 31st Annual Conference of Ethological Society of India, held at Bangalore during 10-12 April 2007

Studies on animal behaviour are vital for several reasons most importantly in connection with conservation, livestock and Wildlife management, animal welfare, sustainable use of animal and human resources, and ultimately for better understanding of human behaviour. In its formative stages, behavioural studies were mostly observational till the classical work of Lorenz, Tinbergen and Frisch catapulted them into Nobel laureates. This had a cascading effect on research on animal behaviour resulting in intense studies in several areas of behaviour mainly information acquisition (neuroethology) and transfer (communication), ecological aspects (habitat related, foraging strategies, migration, predator-prey interactions, population Ecology etc), socio-biology (parent-filial interactions, co-operation & conflict, grouping & dispersion, social organization etc), reproductive strategies, evolutionary aspects (kin selection, altruism, life History strategies etc.), Physiology (behavioural endocrinology, rhythms, neurobiology) and applied behaviour (conservation, animal welfare, livestock production, wild life management, man-animal conflict etc).

Recent trends in Animal Behaviour is a compendium reflecting contemporary trends in the study of animal behaviour ranging from organization of insect societies to monitoring of tigers. It is A Rich source of information on Biological Rhythms, Behavioural Ecology, Social Behaviour, Physiology of Behaviour, Molecular Markers in behavioural studies, and Applied aspects of behaviour. The sheer range of Animals studied makes the Book a virtual treasure of information on tropical fauna. The animals investigated are: Mites, a wide variety of insects, Silk worm, Honey bee, Drosophila, Wasps, Butterflies, Domestic chick, Jungle fowl, Rodents, Bats, Dogs, Monkeys, Chimpanzees and Tigers, some in laboratory but a majority in their natural habitat making the book an important contribution to Animal Behaviour studies and a highly useful reference source for students and researchers alike in this field.

About the Editors

Dr. Shakunthala Sridhara after, obtaining her Ph.D in Animal Physiology from Bangalore University joined a Ford Foundation Project on vertebrate pest management in the University of Agricultural Sciences, Bangalore in 1973.

Over the past 35 years she has been researching on vertebrate pest management specially the control of rodents in the agriculture context. She has researched extensively on the ecology, population dynamics, food selection and feeding behaviour of rodents, toxicology of rodenticides and adoption of rodent pest management at village level. Her studies on behaviour relevant to management of avain and mammalian pests are pioneering in the Indian context and well acknowledged culminating in adaptable technologies for their management. She has visited and interacted with specialists in her field across America and Europe several times. Keenly interested in animal behaviour studies and its application in pest & wildlife management, biodiversity conservation and animal produce, she is a member of several national and international scientific bodies. Currently she is ICAR's Emeritus Scientist and is also involved in studies on Women in Agriculture.

B. Nagachaitanya is a Bio-technologist with several years of experience in Food Processing Industry, soon after his M.Sc. (Biotech) from Bangalore University. His research thrusts are : Fermentation, Integrated Pest Management and application of biotechnology in environmental protection. He has participated in several national scientific meetings and has undergone extensive training in laboratory animal management. Currently he is engaged in research on the Potential of Phytoestrogens and control of mammalian pests along with Dr. Shakunthala Sridhara.

Dr. A.K. Chakravarthy, Professor of Entomology, DAS, Bangalore is author of many books and over 200 scientific papers and 20 chapters in Entomology and Natural History. His interest includes insects, birds, bats, rodents and mammals. With over two decades of experience of teaching, research and extension. Dr. Chakravarthy has been the investigator for over 25 research projects and has guided more than 20 students for post graduation. A Ph.D, from Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana and Post-Doc from IARI, New Delhi, he is a member of several National and International Scientific Academia, an advisor, a Referee, Reviewer and Editor. A field-oriented, widely traveled biologist, he is actively working on novel approaches in Integrated Pest Management, Host Plant Interaction, Vertebrate Pest Management, Biodiversity and Environmental Conservation issues.

Dr. T.K. Prabhakara Shetty is an agronomist of distinction. An alumini of University of Agricultural Sciences, Bangalore, he has vast experience in research management, agricultural extension, post graduate teaching and research in agronomy. He has served rural areas of Karnataka for 27 years out of his 36 years of service. His contributions include 153 research publications, 10 books, 41 radio talks and 9 TV talks, guidance to 15 Ph.D and M.Sc. students and participation in a number of national and international scientific conferences. His major research achievements are in the fields of Scented rice, Bio-fuels, Organic farming, IPM in ground nut, Alternative cropping systems and improved areca cultivation. He has received the 'POOGASRI1 award for his contribution to research on areca nut.
