Marc Bekoff, PhD is an animal behaviorist, Professor Emeritus of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a Fellow of the Animal Behavior Society who has enjoyed a long career studying and teaching animal behavior, as well as working for animal rights organizations.

Contrary to what many people believe, even the species that appear to be simplistic are surprisingly complex and intricate, with individual personalities contributing to group behavior and formation. According to Dr. Bekoff, a lot can be learned simply from closely watching members of a species.

On today’s episode, he talks about what he has learned by studying and spending time with coyotes in Grand Teton National Park, Adélie penguins in Antarctica, chimpanzees, and domestic dogs.

By tuning in, you will discover:

  • How common myths surrounding dogs are perpetuated in society
  • Observations that demonstrate fair behavior within a species, whether in terms of playing, eating, or grooming (and how “cheaters” in the system tend to do in the long run)
  • How non-human animal behavior is similar to human animal behavior
