In Dancing Cockatoos and the Dead Man Test: How Behavior Evolves and Why It Matters, evolutionary biologist and behavioral ecologist Marlene Zuk, illuminates how all of our attributes, behavior or not, are shaped by both genes and the environment in both humans and animals. Zuk invites us to see and celebrate entanglement, complexity, and our connection to other animals, from tiny insects to great apes.
