A monograph on the biology of animal building, embracing all animal groups from simple invertebrates to primate toolmakers. It looks at the behavioural and anatomical equipment animals have in order to build, and the nature of the materials available to them. It examines how animal architects are able, singly or collectively, to produce complex structures often much larger than themselves. It also looks at the costs of building, the properties of completed structures, the ecological impact of them, and their effects on the evolution of animal builders.
