Integrating research from psychology, behavioural ecology, and ethology in a wide-ranging synthesis of theory and research about animal cognition in the broadest sense, this book deals with species-specific adaptations in fish to cognitive mapping in rats and honeybees to theories of mind for chimpanzees. The text analyzes questions like: How do animals perceive the world, learn, remember, search for food or mates, and find their way around? Do any non-human animals count, imitate one another, use a language, or think as we do? What use is cognition in nature and how might it have evolved?
