Come along to hear Gisela Kaplan talk about her latest release: -
"Bird Bonds: Sex, mate-choice and cognition in Australian native birds".
'Some Australian native birds become childhood sweethearts and court for years before they get 'married'. Others divorce because of personality clashes and different skill levels. Many negotiate their parenting duties. But how do these personal life events link to long-lasting bonds, long life-spans and exceptional overall intelligence?
Professor Gisela Kaplan, an eminent voice in animal behaviour, and particularly bird behaviour, draws on the latest insights in the evolution of particular cognitive and social abilities. She uncovers motivations and attractions in partner choice that are far more complex than was once believed. She shows how humans and birds may be more alike in attachment and mating behaviour than we think - despite the enormous evolutionary distance between us.
Light refreshments will be served, and Gisela's books will be on sale courtesy of The Book Warehouse, Coffs Harbour.
