"Rogers and Kaplan take us on a journey through communication in the animal world, offering insights on how animals communicate by sight, sound, smell, touch, and even electrical signaling. They explore a wide variety of communication patterns in many species of mammals and birds and discuss in detail how communication signals evolved, how they are learned, and what song and mimicry may mean." "An up-to-date account of the science of animal communication, this book also considers modern concepts and modern controversies, primarily those surrounding the evolution of human language and the use of symbolic language by apes. It concludes with a look at the future of communication between humans and animals."--Jacket
Contemporary Western European feminism by Gisela T Kaplan( Book )

27 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book marks the arrival of a major new history that introduces the reader to the events, trends and ideas that have marked the development of feminism as a social and ideological movement in Western Europe during the late twentieth century. The volume begins with an overview of the character and development of European feminism and a lengthy discussion of the status of women vis-a-vis technology, domestic work, politics, labor and civil liberty. Kaplan, who is fluent in seven languages, then outlines the postwar history of each country--Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Iceland--drawing on numerous primary documents to provide the most comprehensive analysis to date of women's movements in this region of the world. Illustrating the entire kaleidoscope of European women's movements in their historical and political context, this book is essential reading for students of women's studies and activists for whom it provides both an introduction to European feminism and a vast bibliography for further reading; social movements scholars for its discussion of the various ways movements in individual countries evolved and for its analysis of different paradigms of action; and theorists and single country specialists for whom the book provides a rich basis for comparison

Gene worship : moving beyond the nature/nurture debate over genes, brain, and gender by Gisela T Kaplan( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is must for anyone who cares about social inequality, matters of mind, and the future. It, very comprehensively, juxtaposes scientific and social theories and practices with particular application to matters of gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. We learn of the different scientific theories and positions that scientists have taken in the past and present, and their translation into social practice. With a good deal of authority and erudition: the authors have managed to steer the readers easily through the minefields of ideology in a very readable and easy manner in order to clarify the argument that much of what we know about gender and sexual orientation has been in the service of prevailing ideologies."--Jacket

Comparative vertebrate cognition : are primates superior to non-primates? by Lesley J Rogers( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores afresh the long-standing interest, and emphasis on, the `special' capacities of primates. Some of the recent discoveries of the higher cognitive abilities of other mammals and also birds challenge the concept that primates are special and even the view that the cognitive ability of apes is more advanced than that of nonprimate mammals and birds. It is therefore timely to ask whether primates are, in fact, special and to do so from a broad range of perspectives. Divided into five sections this book deals with topics about higher cognition and how it is manifested in different species, and also considers aspects of brain structure that might be associated with complex behavior

Tawny frogmouth by Gisela T Kaplan( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are shown this captivating Australian species in completely new and even unexpected ways. We learn that tawny frogmouths are very affectionate, have close bonds with lifelong partners, scream like prowling tomcats when distressed, fight with lightning speed and defend nest sites from reptilian predators by mobbing and spraying pungent faeces at these dangerous opponents. Uncompromising male fights are contrasted with a touching gentleness of males as fathers." "We also learn how resilient and unusual tawny frogmouths are in the way they cope with heat and cold, sit out danger, do without drinking for most of their lives, and can use a large variety of food items." "The developmental stages of nestlings and juveniles are illustrated with a number of stunning visual images accompanying the text, most of which have never before been described or seen."--Back cover
