P. Marler* and H. S. Terrace** *The Rockefeller University Field Research Center Millbrook, NY 12545 **Dept. of Psychology, Columbia University New York, NY 10027, USA For the first half of this century, theories of animal conditioning were regarded as the most promising approach to the study of learning - both animal and human. For a variety of reasons, disillusionment with this point of view has become widespread during recent years. One prominent source of disenchantment with conditioning theory is a large body of ethological observations of both learned and unlearned natural behavior. These challenge the generality of principles of animal learning as derived from the intensive study of a few species in specialized laboratory situations. From another direction, the complexities of human language acquisition, surely the most impressive of learned achievements, have prompted developmental psychologists to doubt the relevance of principles of animal learning. Even within the realm of traditional studies of animal learning, it has become apparent that no single set of currently available principles can cope with the myriad of new empirical findings. These are emerging at an accelerating rate from studies of such phenomena as selective attention and learning, conditioned food aversion, complex problem­ solving behavior, and the nature of reinforcement. Not very surprisingly, as a reaction against the long-held but essentially unrealized promise of general theories of learning, many psychologists have asked an obvious question: does learning theory have a future? 2 r.

Animal mind - human mind : report of the Dahlem Workshop on Animal Mind - Human Mind, Berlin 1981, March 22-27 by Donald Redfield Griffin( Book )

The oleic acid on a live and wriggling sister or mother and refrain from evicting her from our hive. But does the occur­ rence of unintelligent behavior suffice to demonstrate the total absence of mental experience under any circumstances? Ethologists from some distant galaxy could easily discern ex­ amples of stupid and maladaptive behavior in our own species. But do instances of human stupidity prove that none of us is ever consciously aware of what he is dOing? No available evi­ dence compels us to believe that insects, or any other animals, experience any sort of consciousness, or intentionally plan any of their behavior. But neither are we compelled to believe the contrary. In areas where data are few and of limited rel­ evance, dogmatic negativity can easily limit what scientists even try to investigate, and thus perhaps delay or prevent im­ portant insights and discoveries. Many of the participants agreed that a good starting point would be to consider what we know of our own thinking, subjec­ tive feelings, and consciousness, and then move on to inquire whether other species experience anything similar. Such an ap­ proach was once considered fallaciously anthropomorphic. But it seems now to be widely if not universally recognized that this is a serious objection only if one has already assumed in advance that conscious thinking is uniquely human, and the accu­ sation of anthropomorphism is then merely a reiteration of the prior conviction
Exploitation of marine communities : report of the Dahlem Workshop on Exploitation of Marine Communities, Berlin 1984, April 1-6 by R. M May( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Free from any of the overtones that often constrain professional fisheries meetings. The present volume is the result. This volume aims to be useful as an appraisal of the state of the art by a mixed collection of insiders and outsiders. Most interestingly, I think, it aims (especially in the four group reports) to identify some of the major areas of unresolved controversy and some of the major questions yet unanswered. I see the book as essentially a tentative statement - often by several dissonant voices - about directions in which we may be heading; the book is emphatically not a canonical utterance on how to do things. It is intended to stimulate, not to codify. Following the usual Dahlem Workshop format, the discussions were organized under four themes. Although crisp demarcation is not possible, the first two themes broadly deal with biological aspects of the dynamics of single populations and the dynamics of systems with many species. The later two themes take up questions of management under uncertainty and multispecies management. In all this, the word "fish" is interpreted broadly to include such taxonomically varied beasts as whales, shrimp, crabs, shellfish, and squid, along with fish in a strictly zoological sense
Evolution and development : report of the Dahlem Workshop on Evolution and Development, Berlin 1981, May 10-15 by Dahlem Workshop on Evolution and Development( Book )

The goal of this Dahlem Workshop is: to examine how changes in the course of development can alter the course of evolution and to examine how evolutionary processes mold development

Hurdle will be in the latter area. The technological hurdles will be formi­ dable but will not limit what happens: once the basic ideas are available, the technology will be developed. The unique part of biotechnology will be to imagine what the possibilities are. There was a discussion in several of the groups on the problems of intro­ ducing a novel science into a social and economic context. What biotech­ nologists are learning on this matter is not novel, although that does not make it any less important or difficult. People in the development of elec­ tronics and computers, in the pharmaceutical industry, and in many other types of industry that have grown from university research have had to face these problems in the past. It is the old situation of having to reinvent the wheel again and again. There is one aspect on which biotechnology seems to have handled this inherent difficulty better than some of our predecessor technologies: the people in the biotechnology companies by and large take a rather academic approach to free communication with one another at meetings such as this and open publication of many of their basic findings in the literature. This seems unique and certainly is different from the experience of the recent Silicone Valley Industry, which in other ways tries to emulate an academic environment, but not in open and free publication

Biological mineralization and demineralization : report of the Dahlem Workshop on Biological Mineralization and Demineralization, Berlin 1981, October 18-23 by G. H Nancollas( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and German and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Normal and pathological mineralization in vertebrates but also with the interesting problems involved in the formation of in­ tracellular deposits of calcium oxalate in plants. Here cal­ cium carbonate and silica may also be involved in the mineral­ ization processes. Calcium carbonate is an important component in the formation of mollusc and avian shells. The observation that both calcite and aragonite may be formed in biogenic cal­ cium carbonate raises important questions as to what factors control the formation of the final mineral phase. There is little doubt that thermodynamically less stable phases may be kinetically stabilized for long periods of time by other mole­ cules present in vivo. In normal mineralization, calcium salts may initially be deposited both within the cells and extracel­ lularly. In the latter case, the role of matrix vesicles and the ways in which the matrix components might control mineral­ ization were especially emphasized. There is clearly a need for more structural and functional information involving cells, matrix components, and their associated crystals. The develop­ ment of further techniques involving mutants, chromofluors, and fixatives for preservation of tissue and the ions present in vivo was recommended. In dealing with abnormal and pathological mineralization, the Workshop concentrated on urolithiasis, gout and pseudo-gout, and the formation of dental caries. Discussions based on the influence of media of low pH on mineral surfaces highlighted some of the factors of importance in controlling crystal dis­ solution
