Comparative Vertebrate Cognition : Are Primates Superior to Non-Primates? by Lesley J Rogers( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 53 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

Contemporary Western European Feminism is a ground-breaking history of feminism. Gisela Kaplan invites a critical analysis of current ideas, terms and assumptions about our modern world.

The term 'Anthropocene', the era of mankind, is increasingly being used as a scientific designation for the current geological epoch. This is because the human species now dominates ecosystems worldwide, and affects nature in a way that rivals natural forces in magnitude and scale. 'Thinking about Animals in the Age of the Anthropocene' presents a dozen chapters that address the role and place of animals in this epoch characterized by anthropogenic (human-made) environmental change

The orangutans by Gisela T Kaplan( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Kaplan, who also specializes in psychology, and Rogers, a biologist and neuroethologist, delve into the heart of orangutan behavior and society. They describe in amazing detail how orangutans learn from each other, mother their young, and communicate. Blending their own extensive research with the work of other scientists in the field, they offer fresh insight into orangutans' emotions and the evolution of their brains. Kaplan and Rogers wrestle with a number of intriguing questions, from how orangutans cope with grief to whether they are conscious or self-aware." "The Orangutans is also a moving treatise describing the perilous future of these magnificent forest dwellers. The authors bring an extremely grounded perspective to the politically charged issue of saving the rainforests, a battleground where biologists and environmentalists fight industry and agriculture to preserve a sensitive ecosystem. They reveal the devastating effects on the habitat of orangutans - who live only on the islands of Sumatra and Borneo - of recent fires, droughts, and widespread floods. Driving home the danger we face of losing these extraordinary animals, they evaluate the best ways to protect orangutans in the wild and preserve our evolutionary heritage."--Jacket
