Abstract: Territorial aggressive behavior was studied in male brook sticklebacks collected in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; Oshkosh, Wisconsin; Ft. Atkinson, Wisconsin, and Urbana, Ohio. In the 20 h of observation 1,167 individual encounters with 3,305 separate aggressive displays were observed. Aggressive behavior was observed to be complex with at least 12 distinct aggressive display postures observed.
