  1. Measuring behaviour : an introductory guide

    Martin, Paul R., 1951-
    2nd ed. - Cambridge [England] ; New York, NY, USA : Cambridge University Press, 1993.

    Measuring Behaviour is a guide to the principles and methods of quantitative studies of behaviour, with an emphasis on techniques of direct observation, recording and analysis. Numerous textbooks describe and analyse human and animal behaviour, but none provides a comprehensive review of the principles and techniques of its measurement. Those undertaking this task for the first time are often bemused by the apparent difficulty of the job facing them - how will they accurately and systematically record all that is happening? The purpose of this book is to provide this basic knowledge in a succinct and easily understood form. This concise review of methodology includes a comprehensive annotated bibliography. Written with , brevity and clarity, Measuring Behaviour is intended, above all, as a practical guide-book.

  2. Measuring behaviour : an introductory guide

    3rd ed. - Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2007.

    'Measuring Behaviour' has established itself as a standard text. Largely rewritten, updated and reorganised, this third edition, is, as before, a guide to the principles and methods of quantitative studies of behaviour, with an emphasis on techniques of observation, recording and analysis.Measuring Behaviour has established itself as a standard text. Largely rewritten, updated and reorganised, this third edition is, as before, a guide to the principles and methods of quantitative studies of behaviour, with an emphasis on techniques of observation, recording and analysis. It provides the basic knowledge needed to measure behaviour, doing so in a succinct and easily understood form. The sections on research design and the interpretation and presentation of data have been greatly expanded. Written with brevity and clarity, Measuring Behaviour is, above all, a practical guide book. Aimed primarily at undergraduate and graduate students in biology and psychology who are about to embark upon quantitative studies of animal and human behaviour, this book provides a concise review of methodology that will be of great value to scientists of all disciplines in which behaviour is measured, including biological anthropology, the social sciences and medicine.

  3. Design for a life : how behaviour develops

    Bateson, P. P. G. (Paul Patrick Gordon), 1938-2017
    London : Jonathan Cape, 1999.

    This work aims to explain the science of behavioural development, the biological and psychological processes that build an adult from a fertilized egg. It also explores the developmental cooking processes that give rise rise to individuals and considers in turn how these processes have evolved.
