Brains in the City: Animal Cognition in a Human-Dominated World
#: CBEP   ID: 9154   Section: 021621C19  
Description:
Cities are unlike any environment animals have experienced in their evolutionary history. And yet, some species thrive in cities. In this talk, I review animal behavioral strategies that work well in human-dominated environments. I focus on learning and cognition, highlighting how the developmental costs of learning result in a unique set of traits of 'smart' species that live alongside humans. I will also discuss more recent speculations that these species may form the basis of future animal lineages.
