American Reference Books Annual[Review for previous edition] A world authority on animal cognition, Sally Boysen has written an overview of the many species that show remarkable mental abilities.... The types of intelligence shown in these groups is also highly diverse (e.g., tool use, communication, language, numerical abilities, social learning). Reports of both classical studies and the most recent research are well described and generously illustrated with photographs and drawings. Particularly interesting are the discussions of the importance of "smart" behaviors to animal survival in the natural world. This fascinating work will attract many readers and especially resonate with anyone who has known a clever animal or pet.
