Zoology in Early Modern Culture: Intersections of Science, Theology, Philology, and Political and Religious Education (Intersections: Interdisciplinary Studies in Early Modern Culture, Volume 32)

This quantity attempts to map out the interesting amalgam of other, in part conflicting ways that formed early sleek zoology. It demonstrates that theology and philology performed a pivotal position within the advanced formation of this new technological know-how.

Peacemaking among Primates

Does biology condemn the human species to violence and conflict? prior reviews of animal habit incline us to respond to definite, however the message of this ebook is significantly extra positive. with no denying our historical past of competitive habit, Frans de Waal describes robust exams and balances within the make-up of our closest animal family members, and in so doing he indicates that to people making peace is as typical as making struggle.

After what seemed like an hour but was actually less than 10 minutes, the trail began to level off. Soon we reached the top of the ridge, the highest point in the forest, nearly 700 meters above sea level. Turning to survey the forest below, the complex sea of green ridges and valleys seemed to roll into themselves like waves. The opportunity to see the forest from this vantage point more than compensated for the near-vertical climb. It was obvious now why this 26 FACES IN THE FOREST forest was so important: off in the distance on all sides the forest stopped abruptly, replaced by a barren, eroded landscape.

Strier). the past remains. The tall canopy in the valleys and on the lower slopes prevents light from penetrating, and in places that have never been disturbed the ground is open and easy to move through. Along the upper slopes, ridge tops, and in places where the canopy has been disrupted, the understory is full of tangled vines and thorny bushes. Moving through these areas is very difficult for humans, but the primates have clearly adapted. 8 Both the marmoset and the howler monkey, like the 12-15 kilogram muriqui, are endemic to the Atlantic forest, and, like the muriqui, they are highly endangered.

Indeed, female gorillas living in groups protected by dominant silverback males, may actually increase their feeding time because the males in their group prevent other males from harassing them. Wrangham's model, which related female behavior to the distribution of food resources and male behavior to the distribution of females, can be used to generate a number of testable hypotheses about primate grouping patterns and social organization. All that is necessary is to determine what a primate prefers to eat, whether it can shift its diet when preferred foods are scarce, and how both preferred and subsistence foods are distributed.
