Becke describes the behaviour of a variety of creatures occupying a number of groups of islands in the Pacific. His anecdotes include, among others: saltwater-drinking cockatoos and pigeons in New Britain; birds that whistle hermit crabs from their shells in Tuvalu; and the revulsion that the natives of the Caroline Islands feel for eels.
