Behavioral Ecology

Behavioral Ecology

Publishing Organization:



Bringing together significant work on all aspects of the subject, Behavioral Ecology is broad-based and covers both empirical and theoretical approaches. Studies on the whole range of organisms, including plants, invertebrates, vertebrates, and humans, are included.

Behavioral Ecology construes the discipline in its broadest sense to include

  • the use of ecological and evolutionary processes to explain the occurrence and adaptive significance of behavior patterns and life history strategies;
  • the use of behavioral processes to predict ecological patterns, and
  • comparative analyses relating behavior to the environment in which it occurs or investigating the pattern of evolution.
  • the mechanisms underpinning costs and benefits of variable behavioural or life history strategies.
Articles from 1997 to the present are available via a current institution subscription. Articles prior to 1997 require access to the Oxford Journals digital archive. Alternatively, you may purchase short-term access on a Pay per Article basis. Members of the International Society for Behavioral Ecology who have registered their subscription automatically have access to all back issues of Behavioral Ecology free of charge.
