Diving Birds of North America: 3 Comparative Egocentric and Locomotory BehaviorsDiving Birds of North America, by Paul Johnsgard
Date of this Version4-1-1987
AbstractAs used here, "egocentric behavior" means those categories of individual survival and maintenance behaviors that are exclusive of such social interactions as aggressive, sexual, and parental behaviors, which will be considered in detail in the individual species accounts and also will be separately summarized in chapter 5. A discussion of the ecological aspects of foraging behavior will also be deferred until chapter 4, though behavioral aspects of underwater locomotion and prey catching will be considered here.
