  • Tristram D. Wyatt

A better understanding of animal behaviour—including mating systems, imprinting, migration, and interactions with other species—can be an important part of attempts to conserve endangered animals. We can also attempt to make life better for our domesticated animals. Every way of studying animal behaviour—from neuroscience, development, learning, to behavioural ecology—can play a part.
