The purpose of Advances within the research of habit is still because it has been because the sequence all started: to serve the expanding variety of scientists who're engaged within the examine of animal habit via proposing their theoretical rules and examine to their colleagues and to these in neighboring fields. we are hoping that the sequence will proceed its "contribution to the advance of the field", as its meant position used to be phrased within the Preface to the 1st quantity in 1965. in view that that point, conventional parts of animal habit have completed new energy through the hyperlinks they've got shaped with comparable fields and by means of the nearer courting that now exists among these learning animal and human topics. Advances within the examine of habit, quantity 31 keeps to serve scientists throughout a large spectrum of disciplines. targeting new theories and learn advancements with recognize to behavioral ecology, evolutionary biology, and comparative psychology, those volumes foster cooperation and communications in those dense fields.

Responding to a species-speciﬁc territorial song and not to the songs of other species will usually be of advantage to males. Hence, it is likely that selection will favor the evolution of species speciﬁcity in songs, as it prevents the waste of time and energy or the risk of injuries involved in aggressive interactions with birds that are not competitors. However, it is realized more and more that the border between signal evolution under the inﬂuence of species recognition and through inter- and intrasexual selection is a gradual one.
