Called “feathered apes” for their simianlike smarts, crows use tools, understand physics, and recognize themselves and humans. But new research suggests that the brainy birds may be even smarter than was previously thought.

New Caledonian Crows Have Tools for Healthy Diets

New research suggests that the brainy birds may be even smarter than was previously thought. Given a complex problem and an assortment of tools, New Caledonian crows came up with a creative solution that hints at higher-order thinking. (See link.

Behavioural Ecology: An Evolutionary Approach (Paperback)

The effects of copulation duration in the bruchid beetle Callosobruchus maculatus  \nEdvardsson and Canal (2006) Behavioural Ecology 17: 430-434    Females did not suffer from long copulations but instead experienced increased lifetime fecundity. Ejaculate size increased with copulation duration. Males that mated first and had long copulations were relatively unsuccessful, and the copulation duration of the second male to mate did not have a significant effect on sperm precedence

Where do I live? This is such a great geography activity for kids of all ages - preschool, kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade (homeschool, geography)

A great geography activity for young kids (pre-K to grade). Also a great idea for teaching the different levels of organization in ecology (populations, community, ecosystem, etc.

A greater knowledge of the behaviour, ecology and habitat of bears is crucial if we are to learn to co-exist peacefully with these magnificent creatures.

NYU Primatology: New York University’s Primate Reproductive Ecology and Evolution research group study the evolutionary and behavioural ecology of nonhuman primates, focusing on sexual selection, reproduction, and communication. Personnel at the NYU Primatology research group took this office selfie in October 2016.

This week’s Workplace Wednesday office selfies is a fab roundup of self-taken group shots posted by AGENTs from offices in England, South Africa and the US.
