  • Genotype-by-Environment Interactions and Sexual Selectionby John Hunt; David J. Hosken

    Wiley 2014; US$ 132.50

    Sexual selection is recognized as being responsible for some of the most extravagant morphologies and behaviors in the natural world, as well as a driver of some of the most rapid evolution.

  • Chaserby John W Pilley; Hilary Hinzmann

    Oneworld Publications 2014; US$ 16.88

    Chaser has a way with words. She knows over a thousand of them—more than any other animal of any species except humans.

Based on that learning, she and her owner and trainer, retired psychologist... more...
