Origins of Intelligence : The Evolution of Cognitive Development in Monkeys, Apes, and Humans

The Design of Animal Communication The Design of Animal Communication by Marc D. Hauser (Editor), Mark Konishi (Editor)

When animals, including humans, communicate, they convey information and express their perceptions of the world. Because different organisms are able to produce and perceive different signals, the animal world contains a diversity of communication systems. Based on the approach laid out in the 1950s by Nobel laureate Nikolaas Tinbergen, this book looks at animal communication from the four perspectives of mechanisms, ontogeny, function, and phylogeny.

About the Author
Mark D. Hauser is Professor in the Department of Psychology and Program in Neuroscience at Harvard University. He is the author of The Evolution of Communication (MIT Press, 1996). Mark Konishi is Bing Professor of Behavioral Biology at the California Institute of Technology.

Department of Animal Sciences at Colorado State University

This site has greater than 700 documents comprised of more than 400 research and extension articles in the animal sciences. Many articles in meat sciences, beef cattle production, animal breeding and animal behavior are written by internationally recognized experts such as Profs. Gary Smith, Daryl Tatum, Keith Belk, Tom Field, Rick Bourdon, Bruce Golden and Temple Grandin. Timely, detailed information is available for those working in the animal production industries, for our 800 students in animal and equine sciences, dedicated researchers as well as for alumni and agricultural youth.  

Animal Sciences has been the major area of study at Colorado State University for a number of years. Animal agriculture in the state is nearly a $2 billion industry, and Colorado is a gathering place for national and international organizations. Undergraduate students are offered both an industry and and science concentration with a double major in Agricultural Business available as well. Alumni hold responsible positions around the country, with three of the last twelve President's of the National Cattleman's Beef Association being Colorado State graduates. The Monfort Endowed Professorship, the Center for Genetic Evaluation of Livestock, the Beef Industry Leadership program, the Center for Red Meat Safety, and many other strengths make Colorado State University the place to study Animal Science. The new $8.5 million Livestock Teaching and Research Center completed in early 2000 has expanded the ability of the department to assure a meaningful and contemporary educational experience.

The Equine Sciences program at Colorado State University has a long history, both in the College of Agriculture and the College of Veterinary Medicine. In 1987, the undergraduate major in Equine Science was accepted by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education and began a new era at Colorado State. Research programs, centered in both colleges, provide an unmatched situation for support of the undergraduate program. Students from across the U.S. and several foreign countries have enrolled in the Colorado State Equine program and it is recognized as the outstanding four-year undergraduate major in equine sciences. The 2,000 seat equestrian arena and the 40 stall Adams-Atkinson indoor schooling arena were completed in the fall of 1994. The equine Science program is one of the most unique programs in the world due to the successful combination of scientific and management solutions to the challenges of the equine industry.

The most successful life form on this planet...There are well over 1 000 000 different known species of insects in the world, and some experts estimate that there might be as many as 10 000 000.

They are divided up into 32 orders (depending on whose taxonomic system you use) of which the largest is the Beetles (Coleoptera) with 125 different families around 500 000 species. In fact one in every four animals on this planet is a beetle.
