*Tóm tắt : Dictionary of Zoology is a comprehensive and up-to-date reference work on all aspects of the study of animals. Containing over 5,000 entries on everything from animal behavior, ecology, and physiology to genetics, cytology, and evolution, the dictionary offers full taxonomic coverage of arthropods, fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals. It is illustrated with clear line drawings, and supported by useful appendices on the genetic code, endangered animals, and SI units.

*Tóm tắt : In 1953 a young female Japanese monkey called Imo began washing sweet potatoes in water prior to eating, presumably to remove dirt and sand grains. Soon other monkeys had copied her behavior, and potato-washing gradually spread throughout the entire troop. When, three years after her first invention, Imo devised a second novel foraging behavior, that of separating wheat from sand by throwing mixed handfuls into water and scooping out the floating grains, she was almost instantly heralded around the world as a "monkey genius." Imo is probably the most celebrated of animal innovators. In fact, many animals will invent new behavior patterns, adjust established behaviors to a novel context, or respond in an appropriate and novel manner... .
