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

  • The Animal Mindby Kristin Andrews

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    The study of animal cognition raises profound questions about the minds of animals and philosophy of mind itself.

  • 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. While Charles Darwin’s theory is now a fundamental component of modern evolutionary biology, the impact of genotype-by-environment interactions on sexual... more...

    Scribe Publications 2014; US$ 21.99

    Science historian Laurel Braitman draws on evidence from across the world to show, for the first time, how astonishingly similar humans and other animals are when it comes to their emotional wellbeing.

  • A Checklist of Host-Parasite Interactions of the Order Crocodyliaby Marisa Tellez

    University of California Press 2014; US$ 65.00

This information... more...

  • Warnen, Tarnen, Täuschenby Klaus Lunau

    Primus Verlag 2014; US$ 48.90

    Wie kommt es dazu, dass die Natur so viele Tarn-, Täusch- und Warnstrategien kennt? Warum gibt es sie überhaupt? Ein giftiges Tier hat Überlebensvorteile, wenn seine Giftigkeit wahrgenommen wird, andere wiederum sehen gefährlich aus, sind aber in Wahrheit ganz harmlos und halten sich so ihre Fressfeinde vom Leib. Pflanzen ahmen Insekten nach, wodurch... more...
