About this book

Based on Marc Bekoff's years of experience studying the social communication patterns of a wide range of animals, The Emotional Lives of Animals shows that animals have rich emotional lives. The author also explores the evolutionary purposes of emotions in a wide range of different species, showing how science is discovering brain structures that produce emotions, how we can track an evolutionary continuum based on shared brain structures among species, and how new information is being revealed by noninvasive neurological research.
