"Words are our tools, and, as a minimum, we should use clean tools. We should know what we mean and what we do not, and we must forearm ourselves against the traps that language sets us." -- The Need for Precise Terminology, Austin (1957, 7–8) It follows that, for effective and efficient communication, people should have, or at least understand, the same precise terminology. Such terminology is crucial for the advancement of basic, theoretical, and applied science, yet too often there is ambiguity between scientific and common definitions and even discrepancies in the scientific literature. Providing a common ground and platform for precise scientific communication in animal behavior, ecology, evolution, and related branches of biology, Animal Behavior Desk Reference, A Dictionary of Behavior, Ecology, and Evolution, Third Edition contains more than 800 new terms and definitions, 48 new figures, and thousands of additions and improvements. Using a dictionary format to present definitions in a standard, easily accessible manner, the book’s main body emphasizes conceptual terms, rather than anatomical parts or taxonomic terms, and focuses on nouns, rather than verbs or adjectives. Term hierarchies are handled with bulleted entries and terms with multiple definitions are included as superscripted entries. All sources are cited and most are paraphrased to conform to uniform style and length. The dictionary also includes nontechnical and obsolete terms, synonyms, pronunciations, and notes and comments, as well as etymologies, term originators, and related facts. Appendices address organism names, organizations, and databases. Devoted to the precise and correct use of scientific language, this third edition of a bestselling standard enables students and scientists alike to communicate their findings and promote the efficient advancement of science.

Efficient Cognition

Many organisms (including humans) make decisions by relying on mental representations. Not simply a reaction triggered by perception, representational decision making employs high-level, non-perceptual mental states with content to manage interactions with the environment. A person making a decision based on mental representations, for example, takes a step back from her perceptions at the time to assess the nature of the world she lives in. But why would organisms rely on representational decision making, and what evolutionary benefits does this reliance provide to the decision maker? In Efficient Cognition, Armin Schulz argues that representational decision making can be more cognitively efficient than non-representational decision making. Specifically, he shows that a key driver in the evolution of representational decision making is that mental representations can enable an organism to save cognitive resources and adjust more efficiently to changed environments. After laying out the foundations of his argument -- clarifying the central questions, the characterization of representational decision making, and the relevance of an evidential form of evolutionary psychology -- Schulz presents his account of the evolution of representational decision making and critically considers some of the existing accounts of the subject. He then applies his account to three open questions concerning the nature of representational decision making: the extendedness of decision making, and when we should expect cognition to extend into the environment; the specialization of decision making and the use of simple heuristics; and the psychological sources of altruistic behaviors.

Zoos, aquaria, and wildlife parks are vital centers of animal conservation and management. For nearly fifteen years, these institutions have relied on Wild Mammals in Captivity as the essential reference for their work. Now the book reemerges in a completely updated second edition. Wild Mammals in Captivity presents the most current thinking and practice in the care and management of wild mammals in zoos and other institutions. In one comprehensive volume, the editors have gathered the most current information from studies of animal behavior; advances in captive breeding; research in physiology, genetics, and nutrition; and new thinking in animal management and welfare. In this edition, more than three-quarters of the text is new, and information from more than seventy-five contributors is thoroughly updated. The standard text for all courses in zoo biology, Wild Mammals in Captivity will, in its new incarnation, continue to be used by zoo managers, animal caretakers, researchers, and anyone with an interest in how to manage animals in captive conditions.

«Η κατάρα που απέτυχε να σε σκοτώσει δημιούργησε έναν περίεργο δεσμό ανάμεσα σε εσένα και στον Άρχοντα του Σκότους. Τα στοιχεία δείχνουν ότι κάποιες στιγμές που το μυαλό σου είναι χαλαρωμένο, και άρα ευάλωτο –όταν κοιμάσαι για παράδειγμα– μοιράζεσαι τις σκέψεις και τα συναισθήματά του. Ο διευθυντής δε θέλει να συνεχιστεί αυτό. Θέλει να σου διδάξω τη σφραγισματική για να σφραγίζεις το μυαλό σου στον Άρχοντα του Σκότους. Το Χόγκουαρτς ζει σκοτεινές ώρες. Μετά από την επίθεση που κάνουν οι Παράφρονες στον ξάδελφό του τον Ντάντλι, ο Χάρι Πότερ ξέρει πως ο Βόλντεμορτ θα κάνει τα πάντα για τον εντοπίσει. Υπάρχουν πολλοί που δεν πιστεύουν πως ο Σκοτεινός Άρχοντας επέστρεψε, αλλά ο Χάρι δεν είναι μόνος του: ένα μυστικό τάγμα συγκεντρώνεται στο Γκρίμολντ Πλέις για να αντισταθεί στις σκοτεινές δυνάμεις. Ο Χάρι πρέπει να αφήσει τον καθηγητή Σνέιπ να τον διδάξει πώς να προστατευθεί από τις άγριες επιθέσεις του Βόλντεμορτ στο μυαλό του. Αλλά οι επιθέσεις γίνονται κάθε μέρα και πιο άγριες και ο χρόνος δεν είναι με το μέρος του Χάρι...
