From ants to whales, the lives of animals are filled with challenges that demand minute-by-minute decisions: to fight or flee, dominate or obey, take-off, share, eat, spit out or court. Learning develops adaptive tuning to a changeable environment, while intelligence helps animals use their learned experiences in new situations. Using examples from field to laboratory, Animal Intelligence pools resources from ethology, behavioural ecology and comparative psychology to help the reader enter the world of wild intelligence through the analysis of adventures, of ideas and methods, rather than through theoretic modelling. It reminds us that there is a world of intellectual biodiversity out there, providing a multi-faceted panorama of animal intelligence.

Book Description:

Animals are constantly being challenged with on-the-spot decisions. Animal Intelligence presents a unified approach to studying all these questions. Written in an accessible and charming style, and with undergraduate and graduate students in mind, this book should be read by anyone with an interest in the world of animal behaviour.

About the Author:

Professor Zhanna Reznikova is a behavioural ecologist and cognitive ethologist. She is an expert in using the information theory approach to study complex communicative means in animals, as well as in developing original field and laboratory experiments to solve intricate questions of inter-relations between competitors and symbionts in insect communities. Head of the Department of Comparative Psychology at Novosibirsk State University and Head of the Laboratory of Community Ethology at the Institute for Animal Systematics and Ecology RAS, she teaches courses in ecology, ethology and evolution, behavioural ecology, zoopsychology, human ethology, and ethological mechanisms of business and advertisement. She received her Dr.Sci. from Moscow State University in 1990 and her Ph.D. from the Institute for Evolutionary Problems of Animal Morphology and Ecology RAS, Moscow, in 1977.
