Dancing cockatoos and the dead man test - how behavior evolves and why it matters Dancing cockatoos and the dead man test - how behavior evolves and why it matters

"A lively exploration of animal behavior in all its glorious complexity, from tiny wasps to lumbering elephants-and humans. It's time to leave behind the tired nature-versus-nurture debate. In Dancing Cockatoos and the Dead Man Test, Marlene Zuk asks a more fascinating question: How does behavior evolve, and how is that process similar-and different-in people and animals? Drawing from a wealth of research, including her own on insects, she explores how genes and the environment work together to

"What if animals and humans could speak to one another? Tom Mustill-the nature documentarian who went viral when a thirty ton humpback whale breached onto his kayak-asks this question in his thrilling investigation into whale science and animal communication. "When a whale is in the water, it is like an iceberg: you only see a fraction of it and have no conception of its size."
