    Summary: This book covers central aspects of behavioral ecology, including sexual selection, social and genetic mating systems, cooperative breeding, brood parasitism, brood reduction, migration, personalities, and communication. Over the past several years, Neotropical bird species from temperate to tropical latitudes of South America have been extensively studied yielding valuable insights into the evolutionary mechanisms that drive their behavioral traits. International experts provide a general overview of main behavioral aspects, and present the main findings of their work, including experimental approaches to testing the most accepted behavioral theory in their model systems. They propose new theoretical frameworks and future research directions. The book provides a comprehensive and updated guide for all researchers, students, and professionals whose work involves the study and management of birds across the Neotropical region.
