In these 34 articles published since 1977, behaviorists describe how they think and conduct research. They begin with topics about "doing science," including several papers on ethics and examples of how they apply, on the mechanics of behavior, including several articles about how we think animals think about numbers, emotions, and sexuality, on how animal behavior evolves, as expressed in domestication and changes in building their homes, and on the adaptive nature of reproductive and social behaviors in such subjects as siblicide, the evolution of jealousy, and the altruistic behaviors of naked mole rats.
