About the Author:


Sara J. Shettleworth, Professor Emerita in the Departments of Psychology and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto, is the recipient of the Comparative Cognition Society's 2008 Research Award and a Fellow of the Animal Behavior Society and Royal Society of Canada. Her research on learning and memory in a variety of species of birds and mammals has been published in more than 100 articles and book chapters. Her widely-read book Cognition, Evolution, and Behavior (OUP, 2010) is now in its second edition.

Review:


"It's a fantastic book--a lucid and clear guide that gets to the heart of the most important and interesting topics in our field."--Amanda Seed, University of St. Andrews


"This is a real tour-de-force. It is stunningly erudite, very up to date, and comprehensive. I can see myself using this in teaching graduate seminars and highest-level undergrad seminars."--Clive Wynne, author of Do Animals Think? and Animal Cognition


"The book will be an invaluable text for both undergraduate and beginning graduate courses in animal/comparative cognition. The encyclopedic authoritative knowledge and intellectual rigor of the author are clearly and effectively reflected in the clarity of her writing, organization of material, and remarkably current citations."--Roger Thompson, Franklin and Marshall College
