Animal Behavior

Animal Behavior Short Course at the Main Library

Main Library: Wednesdays, May 23-June 27*, 6:30–8:00 p.m. (*excludes May 30)

Do monkeys have a sense of justice? Do rats, dolphins, and birds have their own cultures? And how did the wolf evolve into the Chihuahua? In this new MyLibraryU Short Course, University of Louisville Professor and Distinguished Scholar in the Department of Biology Lee Dugatkin will discuss the fascinating field of animal behavior. This five-week class explores scientific approaches to altruism, empathy, and justice in animals; animal culture; how animals avoid predators; aggression and dominance; and how humans domesticate animals.

An evolutionary biologist, behavioral ecologist, and author, Dr. Dugatkin is one of the world’s leading experts on animal behavior.

The program is free, but registration is required: call (502) 574-1623.
